A little-known beach and native Loco Moco burger in Hawaii, wild caught shrimp & a former millionaire's only beach in Georgia, a "dirty" secret beach in Puerto Rico. We explore the best secret beaches hidden in America's parks. It's time to explore the best secret beaches hidden in America's parks! First, we'll head to Kauai and sample the Loco Moco at Yumi's Restaurant in Waimea. Then it's on to the remote Polihale State Park - a secret beach hidden at the end of a bumpy dirt road. At 17-miles long, it's Hawaii's longest beach and must-see for those looking for a little privacy.
For something a little different, hop aboard the Lady Jane Shrimp Boat, for an all-you-can-eat culinary cruise through coastal Georgia. Captain Larry Credle and his crew catch net-fulls of sweet Georgia shrimp and boil them up for you right on deck, complete with cocktail sauce. Then spend the night at the nearby Jekyll Island Club hotel -- once a millionaires-only retreat - on unspoiled Jekyll Island. Today, the island is a public park and protected wilderness, boasting stark, wild beaches like the haunting Driftwood Beach.
We'll travel south to Puerto Rico and check out the rocky cliffs of Cabo Rojo, where Los Morrilllos Lighthouse and the pristine La Playuela beach reward visitors who make the journey. Then sample the local delicacy known as the jelly roll at Brazo Gitano Franco - a family-owned company that been making these sweet treats for over a century.
Finally, we'll track down a hidden beach on the east coast of Florida. Located in St. Augustine, Anastasia State Park occupies the northern half of a barrier island and offers a more private alternative to neighboring St. Augustine beach. Plus it's a secret destination for surfers, and the nearby Surf Station shop caters to locals and visitors alike with surfing lessons, board rentals, and the latest daily surf reports.
