Notes for the No Worries Traveller — Hawai’i’s Secluded Beaches
Many of our No Worries Travellers are seeking that perfect stretch of sand, and it’s always a good idea to be aware of hidden hazards in the sea, along with areas not to visit because of their cultural significance or “locals only” status.
Here are four less travelled options offering some worry-free seclusion:
Kealakekua Bay, Hawaii Island
Hawaii Island’s beaches are found along rocky shoreline of caves and cliffs. Her beaches come and go with the tides based on lava flows and currents — while you keep your eyes open for these “pop-up” beaches, here’s another option that’s always there for you.
At Kealakekua Bay you’ll find the quiet, culturally treasured site of the Hikiau Heiau Temple. There is parking at the temple, with spots to picnic and relax. Listening to sounds of the surf, you can walk along the shore, rest under a tree or sit on the stony beach in the company of the local rock crabs.
Polihua Beach, Lanai
Most spots are Lanai are secluded — it’s only populated by 3,000 people with no traffic lights — but at the northwest tip of the island, Polihua Beach has even fewer visitors.
Polihua is on the other side of the island from most resorts, and you’ll need a 4-Wheel Drive vehicle to get there. Once you arrive, the views of Molokai from the fine sands are fabulous, and you can even see Oahu on clear days. The strong currents make this beach un-swimmable, so enjoy tanning along with the local green sea turtles. Since they are endangered, mahalo for enjoying them from afar. This site’s miles from anything, so bring plenty of water, and be sure to let your car rental company and hotel know where you’re going.
Secret Beach, Oahu
The Ko Olina Resort complex is between Waikiki and the North Shore, with a little beach that has a royal past. Secret Beach is a short walk for the resort hotels, and is a more natural experience than the manufactured lagoons you’ll find on the property. It is only accessible to resort guests, and its calm surf, tranquil swimming and general solitude were enjoyed daily by Queen Kaahumanu, consort to King Kamehameha I.
This property remains exclusive, with private property nearby — look for posted signs to stay within the public areas.
Waimea Beach, Kauai
The sunny west side of Kauai Island is dry, with road access to one of her least crowded coasts. The fine brown-black sand of Waimea Beach is great for leisurely strolls, and you’ll have views of the island of Niihau across the channel. This is another beach where water conditions aren’t good for swimming — being near the river mouth makes the water murky, keeping away the crowds and luring in some of the local hungry, sharp-toothed fishies.
The lazy beach is near historic Waimea Plantation Cottages, with no real development other than the historic rural character of old Hawaii. Even Captain Cook appreciated her charms when he anchored offshore in January 1778.
