'secret beach' Makena Cove beach in Maui.  Literally took my breath away while standing there.:

On the Waterfront Georgia O’Keeffe was inspired to paint landscapes out on the remote Hana side of the island, known for its rugged beaches, horseback riding, and simple charms. The famous Blue Pool, an oceanside waterfall, is accessible only to those willing to ford a river and clamber over volcanic boulders. Stay at the Travaasa Hana, a flashback to old Hawaii, with cottages inspired by plantation houses. Toss the guidebook and explore the twists, turns, and stunning vistas of Maui’s 34-mile Hana Highway. On Honokalani Road, just off the Hana Highway, is Waianapanapa, a black-sand cove set between cliffs. Watch daredevils paddle their boards beyond the weathered rock arches and lava tubes jutting from the shore. At the Hasegawa General Store, load up on bargain surf shorts and folding beach chairs.
