Hike Summary: From the end of Uakea Road, hike east across the open field to find the trailhead located along the south side of the field. The trail initially drops down over the hill towards the ocean and then undulates up and down as it parallels the coastline as it heads east. Just before reaching the beach, the trail turns north for a short stint. The trail can be slippery at several points along the way so be careful.

The visual splendor of this beach is breathtaking. However, depending on your tolerance for the out of the ordinary, be discriminate about whether or not you want to visit this beach. It is apparently known to be frequented by nude bathers.
