This is an awesome secluded beach. It's a steep hike down but there's a rope to help you stay on your feet. People of all ages made it down. Definitely worth the views. We went snorkeling while there. The water was very clear (much clearer...More

The water was still a bit cloudy from the recent heavy rain and wave action but was still clear enough to snorkel in and view a fair amount of fish and coral. The waves break quite a ways beyond the beach so it was quite...More

There is a very narrow path you have to look closely for right before you get to the St. Regis with a small parking lot that holds about 6 cars. Then its about a 10 minute “hike” down a very steep trail you have to...More

This was my favorite beach on the island. Tucked away with an awesome reef for snorkeling. We swam with a bunch of sea turtles just off shore. The hike down is a bit tough but it's worth it.

We had a home rented in Princeville so the beach was within walking distance. That made it really handy for all. There were ten of us and aged from five to sixty six. This beach fitted all our requirements. Shallow spots for the little tikes,...More

This is fun to go mostly because it's so beautiful, but also because it's hard to get to. The entrance is only a few hundred yards from the St. Regis Princeville, but the trail drops down a couple of very steep slopes. There are hand...More

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.
