This beach is beyond beautiful!!! We have gone back twice. The trek down and back looks super sketchy but it’s not as bad as it looks. Not very many people on the beach! Sooooo beautiful! A must!

Go take a beach chair and enjoy the last hour or so before sunset. We had some great waves breaking before sunset and then an awesome sunset. It’s the farthest west most of us are going to ever be able to stand on US soil...More

This beautiful beach that is literally at the end of the road is well worth a visit just before sunset. The beach is sandy and clean, with plenty of perfect viewing locations to watch the sun set behind the rocks

Hideaways is a lovely beach -- nice shade, beautiful water, and very picturesque. Even though it's located right in Princeville, its limited parking access makes it usually fairly quiet. Good snorkeling on calm days.

I first enjoyed this secluded beach nearly 40 years ago when it was a handful to reach from the parking lot. Today it's easy and as beautiful as ever.

Best to go in the afternoon because it’s shady in the morning. Saw a ton of fish and a sea turtle. The beach is pristine and worth the trip.

The parking lot for this beach is easy to miss and often full. I lucky enough to snag a parking space around 3 PM on a Thursday. The walk down was a bit of a trek but nothing too dangerous - what makes it difficult...More

The beach is directly behind the condo. project. Parking is a challenge. The access is very steep and hard to climb down. HOWEVER, it's worth it! Shallow reef. lots of rock and small fish. In the winter it can be rough. Summer is like a...More

Two sections, one accessible by a steep slippery path that starts next to the Pu'u Po'a condo pool and tennis courts, and another via a paved path from Pali Ke Kua condos. The second path is much easier, but the first beach is better, and...More

Hideaways was an awesome experience - very cool secluded beach. The walk down is a little steep but very doable and there is a rope that you can hold on to for support. For parking, I'd recommend parking at the St... More

Waves can get bigger in winter but still safe to swim and snorkel. Water temp is still ok As far as clouds, all depends on weather. The north shore gets its fair share of rain but than a half hour later it's a rainbow and... More
