Spend the day at a secluded beach and enjoy swimming, kayaking, stand up paddling, sunbathing or just relax on a hammock amidst the beauty of Kualoa Ranch.
Plan to visit Kualoa Ranch and their private beach area called Secret Island, tucked behind the ancient Molii Fishponds and nearby to Kaneohe Bay. Here is the backdrop of some of Hollywood's most popular TV & movie beach scenes as seen in Jurassic Park and Lost. The vibe is very relaxing but you can spend your time here any way you want. Bring a picnic or help yourself to any of the beach amenities available like kayaking, canoe riding, standup paddling, beach volleyball, badminton, ping pong, or even take a ride in a glass bottom boat.

After the check-in at Kualoa Ranch we took a shuttle to Moli'i Fishpond deck. When crossing the fishpond on a floating boat m...ake sure to have your camera ready! It's the best time to take pictures of the majestic mountain range. The scenery is incredible, you feel like you are in a movie! Once on the other side, we started enjoying our day at this beautiful private beach with views from Chinaman's Hat and Kaneohe Bay. They have restrooms, changing rooms, fresh water shower, covered picnic tables and a staff member to help you if you need anything. Make sure to bring sunscreen and some snacks. My brother and I spent the morning kayaking, snorkeling, stand up paddling and playing games. The staff took us on a quick Glass Bottom Boat ride and we spotted a lot of green sea turtles! After all those activities we were just relaxing in a hammock under a palm tree. I will definitely come back to enjoy another relaxing day there! more
Beautiful location and no crowds. We loved having kayaks and paddleboards to use leisurely. It was better than we had expected.
Not enough kayaks or paddle boards for the amount of people there. There needs to be some kind of system to check out the kayak...s and the boards. Three local girls were on the paddle boards for 2.5 hrs and didn't let anyone else use them. more
Enjoyed it, it was nice. It's worth the money for the SUP and the kayaking. However, not the snorkeling. Water is too murky... for it. I think it would be good to allow the swimmers to sign a release to not have to wear a life jacket. The area they give you to paddle and kayak on is limited and very close to the shore area. more
The staff is really really nice !! They are So many things to do ( snorkelling / paddle / games ...) This is really not expensiv...e for all that. The weather wasn't really good this day but still had a great great time more
Beach was beautiful, but it felt that the time was too short. Would've liked it longer. Catamaran cruise is included with thi...s. Same trip if you purchase the Catamaran cruise by itself. You get two in one but it shortens your time at the beach. And sadly we were not told this, so we did 2 Catamaran trips which were exactly the same. No difference. Secret beach itself was beautiful with hammocks, kayaks, etc available. more
Great day on the secret beach. Although there are only a few kayaks & SUP's, the 8 of us had plenty of time on them. Bea...ch chairs provided and we took picnic. The area to use equipment is blocked off and is a tad smaller than we would have liked. Also the area is over a reef so if you fall in the water be careful. Enjoy more
My friends and I had a good time here. Many different thinks to keep us occupied. Love seeing the sea turtles.
