Not really a hike. More of a short beach walk. If you’ve ever been to the Bahamas you won’t agree that this is a white sand beach but it is beautiful. A few restaurants and food stands nearby and there is street parking plus a paid lot across the street.

Beautiful beach that is super popular for tourists. Beware, take extra caution if you go for a swim. It is referred to as "Tragic Slams Beach" lots of people including my father have been sucked under and hit the sand hard. Luckily he was okay besides a stiff neck and loosing his swim trunks.

There is no hike here right off All’I dr. Very nice beach with a few rocks and a whole lot of waves!

Short beach stroll, morning surfers, and quite a few "beach sleepers."

not much of a trail, homeless in the brush to the south..... the small beach has amazing waves for surfing.

The beach is crowded, close to the street, and very small. This was my least favorite beach I visited.

I love this beach but it is definitely not a place to go hiking.

First to Review

Not aware if there is a hiking trail here, but Magic Sands Beach (AKA Disapearing Sands Beach) is famous for its beautiful, abundant, fine white sand getting periodically washed out to sea during storms, mostly in the winter months, exposing the huge lava boulders along the shore, thus rendering it temporarily impossible for swimming. But the popular sand volleyball court remains intact year round. Eventually the sand returns (thus its names,) and the many body surfers, swimmers and sunbathers to the tiny (c.200 ft. long) beach. Beware of the deceptively strong wave activity and do not harass the endangered honu (Hawaiian sea turtles) that appear from time to time!
