Diving in Paradise at Hideaway's Beach

Hawaii Hideaway's Beach

Added by Wyatt Shaw

  • A hidden gem if there ever was one
  • The reef is huge, the beach is quiet, and the snorkeling is excellent
  • The view from the top is picturesque and once you get into the water, it's even better

This beach is easily found by driving into Princeville and heading toward the St. Regis hotel. The trail to the beach is just before you arrive at the hotel. There is a small public parking lot on the right, which leads to the trail. If the lot is full, don't worry, the St. Regis Resort will valet for your car for free. Just let them know you are going to Hideaway Beach.

The entrance to the beach is a rundown set of stairs. It becomes a little steep in places, and in certain spots, rope replace the metal railing. Take your time heading down to the beach and you will be fine. Keep in mind that there is no lifeguard so be careful when swimming and always have a partner.

Pack List

  • Pack light (the trail isn't for carrying a lot)
  • Towel
  • Food/ snacks
  • Water
  • Sunscreen
  • Snorkel gear

How to Get There

about 1 year ago

One of the most beautiful beaches on Kauai

This is an incredible hidden gem. We would not have found it without a recommendation from friends before we left even though we were staying right near it. We were not diving, but I highly recommend this beach for anyone as long as you can handle the steep access to the beach. It gets kind of rough in spots. Incredible water and views.
