The beach is a great secluded spot with spectacular views. However when we were there, there was tons of small flies in the sand. We wound up leaving because of it. Another family left as well because they were being bitten. If this is not...More

We went to Hideaway's Beach after visiting Queen's Bath as we had heard it's one of the island's best beaches. We took advantage of the free valet parking at the St. Regis as the (small) parking lot for the beach was full. The trail down...More

It is really a hideaway gem! We had valet parking since St Regis had very limited self-park slots. So you go through the narrow path by the parking lot and descend a steep trail with ropes as railings you can hold on to. It is...More

This is what Hawaii is about. It’s a bit treacherous getting down to the beach so definitely not for the little ones but once you get down there it is amazing. The trek down and back up is adventurous but the shady beach, the views...More

The trip down is quite interesting, especially if its been raining. The beach itself is very nice, it just seems to be rather busy every day.

Why did we wait so long to see this hidden GEM. We were on the ST. Regis hotel side. There are two sides to the beach. There are only eight places to park then follow the trail down. A little hairy on a few parts...More

Parking is the main issue here. It is easier to just use the valet at the St. Regis. It is free but give a tip to the valet on your way out. Beautiful beach! Not too busy because the hike down is truly a hike...More

Wear sturdy shoes, STEEP, nature-made stairs with guide rope for support, no facilities. Bring water, towels, sunscreen and snorkel gear. We parked for free (tip only) at the St. Regis valet :)

Drive to the Princeville St. Regis. 50 yards before the hotel to the right is the very small parking lot (8 cars). You can not miss it.

we went 2 days before storm, but still plenty of rain and High Tide warnings, so the water was not real friendly and nice, so we chose to look at rather than possibly get swept away in it.
