We tried to go and visit this beach since so many friends have told us to visit it. Unfortunately, the beach trail has been too dangerous to walk along and not considered safe for hiking to. Locals also didn't like us there and asked us...More

should be kept a secret. This place is so beautiful, it's a cool beach. Lot's of naked people. I recommend not to bring your children. I saw a kid playing in the beach sand and he got bit real bad by bugs in the sand.

Such an amazing hidden gem, never seen anything like it. Decent hike, though not difficult, gorgeous views and the beach seems to come out of nowhere. Favorite part of the whole Road to Hana experience.

1000% worth the rocky hike down if you're able! We basically drove the entire island and this was the final beach we made it to on our last day- and it was our absolute fav spot. It does come with some nude bathers sometimes, but...More

This is a must see and do. The trail to get to the beach is a little tricky but well worth it! The wave crash against the rocks and provide a barrier to a beautiful sparkling pool of blue water and red sand

Don’t be discouraged about the walk/hike to this beach! It isn’t that difficult and the payoff is unbelievable!!

No permit needed. Just find a parking spot near the community center and the trail begins in the field behind the community center. It doesn’t cost a thing. Enjoy!

Sorry, just saw your message. Yes. It is a lovely walk to the beach and I recall views of the water. Don't remember exactly...we are 70 and 71.
