  1. Hello, I’m looking for a secluded white sand beach with beautiful water that also has some simple accommodation available. Does anyone know of a place like this in Hawaii?

    Thank you,

    Eve

    • In the Puako area on the Big Island there are numerous secluded beaches with vacation rentals; also down at Ho’okena and Honomalino, to name just a few. Be aware that, state wide, beaches are all public and access to the public is guaranteed, so secluded means something different here than elsewhere where beaches are private and only the wealthy are allowed.

      However, seclusion and public access are relative terms–just because it;’s legal to visit certain beaches doesn’t mean a lot of people do. You CAN find peaceful, quiet beaches that are really secluded and clothing optional (if that’s what you are looking for). But you’ll have to search a bit for them. Nobody who lives here is going to advertise their existence, because WE want secluded beaches, too, and many of our more popular beaches are, well, a tad crowded.

      Look at Hawaii vacation rentals, ask to see photos of the property–be certain it’s what you want. Remember–it’s sunny on the western side of the islands (lee side) and rainy on the east (windward)…an empty beach does you no good if it’s raining 6 inches a day–which it can. Perfect, secluded beaches are hard to find. Do your research, keep looking…they’re here.
