Relax at the hidden Pa’ako Beach (Secret Cove) on Maui

Tom’s experience relaxing at Secret Cove:

Pa’Ako Beach, also known as Secret Cove, is no longer much of a secret but is still a very pretty beach to visit. The beach isn’t very large but it is very pretty especially if you go around sunset. There are a lot of rocks which make the waves coming onto the beach fun to watch.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: The parking for Secret Cove is just along Makena Road after Makena Beach.

Enjoy a relaxing day at the cool Toquerville Falls

Tom’s experience enjoying the Toquerville Falls:

Toquerville Falls is a beautiful waterfall outside of St. George, Utah. The falls really are an oasis in the desert.

They can be a bit of a challenge to get to without a good four wheel drive vehicle. The road to the falls is dirt and very rocky.

Toquerville Falls St. George

We rarely have problems on dirt roads but this road gave us a run for our money. We saw plenty of trucks with a higher clearance than us and they all seemed to make it fine.

Finding Toquerville Falls

Also there were a few ATVs that also didn’t seem to have a problem. There are a few camping spots by the falls if you are interested in spending the night.

Otherwise you can swim and play near the waterfall as long as you’d like. Dogs are allowed here.

 

Playing in the fallsWhen we went there was no easy way to get to the lower falls swimming area without rappeling equipment.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: Take exit 27 off of I15 and drive 2.6 miles southeast to Toquerville. Just as you enter the town turn left onto Spring Drive. Spring Drive will start off paved but will turn to dirt and then will become very rocky. Follow Spring Drive for 3.6 miles and the road will fork. Take the right fork and continue for about 2 miles. Here you will turn to the right and head down to the falls. You can drive over the falls if your vehicle can make it.
