Lower Pa'ia Secret Beach benefits a little less from being a secret - it's not kept very hidden - and a little more from the lack of beach side parking. Thus, visitors are forced to walk a short distance to reach this beach. The trail isn't hard at all, it's a flat dirt path, however this seems to be enough to keep the families from leaving H.A. Baldwin Beach Park to the west or Pa'ia Beach to the east. 

You won't find any amenities at Secret Beach - there are no tables, no bathrooms, no running water, no lifeguards. However the tradeoff is you'll find sandy shores and shaded grass with far fewer people than the popular beach parks. 

All amenities, including abundant parking, are located at H.A. Baldwin Beach. The path from Baldwin is easy to find, if you just head to the east end of the parking area and continue past the signs.
