This is a public beach to the west of the St Regis beach and Hanalei Bay Resort beach access trail. Nice views all day long especially sunsets. Great privacy the farther west you go. Eventually you will run into an outcropping of rocks. Before this...More

The trail is a little tricky to be sure. Lots of surfers taking advantage while we were visiting plus some sunbathers too. It's very pretty and there looked to be some decent snorkeling as well.

If you are fortunate to find parking at the top (there are about 8 spots of free parking), you are in luck. The trail down is next to the St Regis entrance/guard hut, and is well marked. Many steps to the bottom! But well maintained...More

This is a public access walk to the Pu'u Poa Beach. It's very doable. Carry water if it's hot. It was a side trip during my early am run. A very splendid side trip. The little shelter is for the St.Regis guests to call for...More

We loved this beach, we accessed it from the St. Regis Hotel. The hotel is very lovely, free valet parking! So we went there for special meals and cocktail by the beach as well. Amazing sunsets!

Beautiful picturesque overlooking Hanalei bay. Good shade and some reef to swim. Can rent paddle boards or kayaks. Princeville hotel right behind for expensive drinks and food. Hard to access unless you are staying near by.
