Pali Ke Kua Beach, Kauai

This beach (not be confused with neighboring Hideaways beach) is situated directly below the Pali Ke Kua condominiums. A steep but pleasant cement path leads from the condos to the beach. This isn't a swimming beach as there are too many rocks in the water, but you can snorkel when the ocean is calm.

A sign at the beginning of the path claims that the path is private, and that public access to the beach is via neighboring Hideaways beach. We've never seen anyone using the path questioned about where they're staying and surfers frequently utilize the path. The path is also supposed to be a public right of way. Finally, some publications mention that one can reach this beach from neighboring Hideaways. That's only possible during very low tides and you would still have to nagivate over slippery rocks (not recommended)..
