The beach itself is great! You get the water the rock the sand and natural tree as canopy! However, the road leading to it can be dangerous! Recommend pants and closed toe shoe and then change.

A little difficult to find but worth the effort. Path to the beach is steep , muddy and slippery after rain. Not for the faint of heart. Great snorkeling. It is where we finally were able to find and swim w a sea turtle. Wow! Path down is to left of tennis courts near St Regis. Walk if u can... More

We are completing our month stay at Pali Ke Kua and our stay could not have been improved upon. The view from our second story lanai is pure bliss. An artist could not have improved upon it. The unit is quiet, fully furnished with top quality linens and ample cooking utensils. Cross ventilation had us cutting down on the air... More

Like a lot of other beaches, but pretty small and pretty mellow. A nice place to just chill and relax as you watch the pounding waves. Be careful on the rocks and check out all the sea cucumbers down there too.

I come to this spot every year. I love it here The only thing is that the hiking ability gets a bit harder for some people as there has been a lot of erosion compared to last year. The railings have become more damaged or broken. Prob best to go down in your hiking shoes compared to sandals. Prob not... More

Ok so it's February and fairly low tide this impacted our experience. We found 2 beaches- the paved path from the Puu Pau condos leads to a remote beach with lots of shade. The paved path is steep but very manageable. The beach is very rocky and not very good for swimming or surfing. You cannot get to the public... More

This beautiful beach was just below our condo. It is pretty secluded and there seems to be only surfers parking here. The short hike down to the beach isn't for the weak. 2ft steps in some spots. Did I mention worth it?

This beach is truly a must see while on Kauai. The path is not easy to find, nor is the climb down particularly easy, but the work is well worth it! The beach is completely secluded and peaceful, with amazing views in all directions. If you go in February you will likely see whales off the coast--we saw so many!... More

This is a very challenging hike if your not in shape. I live in Oregon and enjoy hiking at the young age of 73, but would not do a repeat of this hike. Even with a hiking pole, it proved to be to be a hike for the younger set. Beautiful views and lovely beach at the final destination.
