Great hike with kids. After you cross the initial creek the trail will take you to the right...to a very steep drop off. Do not go that way...go to the left. It kinda looks like a clearing but it’s the “true” trail that’s a moderate downhill hike that takes you to the ocean. When you get to the ocean, follow to the left a couple hundred yards and you’ll see the private beach.

Decently muddy trail if you happen to go after a rainstorm. There’s a few creeks/creek beds to be crossed. Bring shoes with good traction. My Vans did the job. There’s a homeless man camped out on the beach, he does not bite. Say hi and give him a beer. Overall, fun little hike. Bring the kids, but leave grandma behind.

Get out there!

Short hike to a gorgeous beach. Trail can be slippery if there's been recent rain, but totally doable even with kids and beach gear. Also, if you head to the right at the shoreline, then scramble across the rocks for a couple hundred feet, there is an easy to find waterfall and a nice freshwater swimming hole. All in all, this is a rare gem of a beach, a nice short jungle hike, and a great way to avoid the crowds.

Fairly easy hike to a really beautiful beach with great snorkeling! Make sure to bring water shoes as it's quite shallow with rocks/coral when getting into the water. Also wear good shoes as it's muddy & slippery on the trail going down. Ignore the big rock saying 'wrong trail' half way down and just pass it and keep walking along the black lava rocks (trail leads you parallel to lava rocks) until you get to the beach! There are 7 parking spots marked 'trail' at the Sealodge 1 building where you can park. We went there on a Saturday at 11am and there were only 2 other couples there. As it got later more people started arriving. This hike/beach is definitely worth it!! ;)

Easy hike to pretty beach in a protected cove. Nice snorkeling but super shallow, which makes it difficult. Don’t walk in the coral ! About 20 people here - not crowded. Designated Trail parking spots at sea lodge 1 building. Trail starts there.

Not many people there and it’s a beautiful hike to a beautiful coastline and beach! Be prepared for it to rain on and off and wear good shoes!

Great little hike to a secluded beach. We went around 6am after a rainy evening and it was extremely slippery. Wear good shoes and bug spray. Lovely sunrise views and secluded beach. Watch our for false trails.

Nice easy trail next to SeaLodge. It leads down to the ocean where you can swim/ snorkel.

Short, fun, and ends at a beautiful destination, well worth the slippery hike!
*Plan to get muddy and wear bug spray.*

Rated mainly for the destination - a beautiful and secluded beach. You also get a gorgeous view of the reef at the beginning.

More of an access trail since it is so short. Nice wooded scenery, including a small waterfall. Moderately steep in a few spots. Nice area to explore at the bottom. The only parking is at the resort (everything is marked tow zone, but I didn’t get towed)

A means of getting to beautiful Sealodge beach. Usually a bit slippery in spots. 3 stars for the trail, 5 stars for the beach!

A bit difficult to get here after the rain last night but we swam in the cove and washed all the red mud off. We have the beach to ourselves...very nice!

Very slippery on a dry day, wear proper footwear. Not a good beach for playing in the water, only a few feet deep and Rocky. little bit of course sand to play in. great for sitting and relaxing. was to choppy to snorkel while we were there

The trail is short and easy (though downhill can be slippery). We stayed at Sea Lodge and loved having this beach almost to ourselves.

Beautiful beach, short walk for access. Watch the kids on one slightly technical stretch near the beach.
