The List: Hawaii's Best Secret Beaches

Big Island
Pololu Beach
This gorgeous strand on the rocky northern Kohala Coast may not be ideal for swimming or sunbathing, but it's the perfect setting for a romantic oceanfront picnic.

Kauai
Polihale Beach
Fifteen miles of easy-to-reach pristine white sand on the Napali Coast, with big waves and hardly any people.

Lanai
Polihua Beach
A beautiful stretch with a powerful current on the northwestern shore, ­surrounded by cliffs and accessible by four-wheel drive.

Maui
Waianapanapa Black Sand Beach
At the base of the King's Highway, in Hana, sea caves and lava tubes are ready to be explored.

Oahu
Bellows Field Beach
A wide strip of the eastern shore that's sparsely populated (rare on Oahu), with shallow waters—great for swimmers.
