“Best Beach Ever”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

When my husband and I were trying to decide between Princeville and Poipu on Kauai, we were envisioning lush, green spires and crystal blue water with good snorkeling. That's what we got at Pali Ke Kua Beach. Not only were we blown away by our Pali Ke Kua condo, we were equally stunned by the beauty of this nearby gem of a beach.

One consideration is that that this particular beach is probably not the best for those with very young children (under 6), especially if you decide to use the very steep trail to Hideaways Beach. Try one of the many--many!--other beaches on the north shore that are very family-friendly.

“Hideaway wonder”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Though it's a bit of challenge to get to, it's definitely worth the effort. Beautiful, small, almost private beach with good snorkeling. Lovely, low hanging trees offered shade when needed.

“Gorgeous.”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The trail is a little scary but the beach is a real sight to see, and there is shade! This is something not to be missed. You may have a problem finding a place to park though. Luckily we were staying close enough to walk.

Reviewed 27 April 2014

Be in GOOD shape to get there and go on CALM sea days only but well worth the steep, rope lined climb

“Lovely Stay, Great Condo”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We really enjoyed our time at this condo. It was clean, quiet, upgraded and a lovely view of the water. #244. We contracted for it with Kauai Vacation Rentals in Lihue and highly recommend their services. They quickly confirmed the rental, managed the process expertly, left the condo access materials at the car rental agency for us and were responsive to our questions and comments.
