Hideaways Beach in Kauai is incredibly hard to find but once you find it you just know it was worth the effort. Its not so much that its in a secret difficult spot, its that most of the public access to the beach is restricted.
Its one of the things I really disliked about Kauai and it makes me realise how lucky we are in Australia to have almost free access to our entire coastline. The only available public carpark has a spot for 10 cars, that’s it! Needless to say I had to be creative with my parking endeavours and ended up sneaking into one of the private resorts and parking there.
Any way once I made it to Hideaways Beach I had a blast. I got there 2hrs before sunset as I’d never been there before and I wanted to have a good look around. Whilst I was there I saw this awesome rain shower drift over the mountains and that it was being illuminated by the last rays of daylight so I started to snap away.
