Secret Hidden Beaches In Kauai

If it’s serenity and solitude you’re after, head to one of Hawaii’s many secret, off-the-beaten-path beaches. We are certain you will enjoy!

Polihale Beach, Kauai

Located at the end of a long, unpaved dirt road off Kaumuali’i Highway, Polihale Beach is often overlooked in favor of the more accessible beaches at Poipu and Kalapaki. It’s a shame; sprawled over 17 miles, it’s the longest stretch of beach in Hawaii, and arguably one of the most beautiful, backed by 100-foot sand dunes and framed by the Na Pali cliffs. From its silvery sands, you can even spot the “forbidden” Hawaiian island of Niihau.

Secret Beach, Kauai

Though its real name is Kauapea, this isolated, half-mile stretch of sand is better known among locals as Secret Beach. The name fits: Nestled between Kalihiwai Bay and Kilauea Point, it’s located far off the tourist track and accessible only by a rocky, unmarked trail. Lava rocks border the beach on both sides and jutting red cliffs cloaked by lush vegetation and cascading waterfalls form a dramatic backdrop. Be warned: Though public nudity is illegal in Hawaii, the far east side of the beach is unofficially clothing-optional.

We hope you enjoy!
