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 :)

This is a gem of a beach that is hidden between the St. Regis and the condos situated next door. There is a very small dirt path next to the tennis courts and the small parking lot for the beach. The trail descends very sharply...More

Stayed at Hanalei Bay resort. We walked from HBR to Hideaways beach through the St. Regis. What a wonderful snorkeling experience. First of all, the path down is steep and slippery. Please were appropriate shoes. Tevas or strapped sandels at the minimum. Do not wear...More

We went to this beach three times to snorkel and found it quite nice. Be prepared to hang onto rope on the way down and up the steep slope. The beach is not very wide, perhaps due to recent storms, but the snorkeling was OK....More

Stayed at the St Regis and walked over to Hideaway Beach in Kauai. Very scenic, a bit of a challenge to get down due to the wet muddy conditions. There are 2 sets of ropes to help navigate down the path but nothing too extreme...More

We climbed down to Hideaways in very wet conditions multiple times before during and after the affects of Hurricane Lane. Several times we had our 4 and 6 year old grandsons with us. We made sure to have an adult in front and in back...More

The very small parking area is always full but fear not, valet parking at the St. Regis is free. It’s a steep hike down and slippery after rain. You’ll want anything for footwear other than flip flops. Can carry things if you are brave but...More

Limited access due to limited parking. The path is slightly hidden between fences and the walk down to the beach is steep and not for the light hearted. The end of the trail off the bluff rewards one with a beautifully small beach with a...More

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.
