Secret Beach Properly known as Kauapea Beach All My Condos in Kauai This is another huge beach, nearly 1 1/2 miles long with fine white sand, black lava rock, stunning cliff backdrops, lush vegetation, and enchanting waterfalls. The setting is entirely rustic -- except for the houses you can see on the hilltop -- and can only be reached by a 10 minute 150 foot vertical path. Swimming on this beach ranges from dangerous to impossible because there is no reef protection. From the soft golden sand, you can see Kilauea Lighthouse to the east perched high on a cliff that looks out to Moku'ae'ae Island [inhabited only by hundreds of sea birds].
