This beach is pleasant enough, though in November the current in the water seemed like it could be dangerous/ contain rip tides. I'm a strong swimmer and I felt pushed around by the ocean at Poipu while snorkelling there. It was also quite hard to get in the water without standing on reef. Good for surfing, by the looks of...

Our tour had arranged our bagged lunch pick up at Poipu Beach Park, which meant we had awesome views to see while eating lunch. Beach looked nice, lots of grassy area. Great place to unwind and chill.

Nice spot for kid friendly snorkel and even boogie boarding. Short beach so get early if want a good spot. Saw turtles on shore as well as monk seals

Lovely park with covered picnic tables, grass right to the beach, lifeguard, sheltered cove for little kids and a sandbar to protect from riptides.

Clean and lots of fun, very safe for the family but still lots of sexy people too! Lots of green grass to lay on right before getting into the sand and ocean!

This is a lovely beach with nice palm trees, restrooms. You can snorkeling, there a plenty of beautiful fishes and there is a monk seal which is laying on the beach every afternoon :) Originally I went to the Poipu beach to see some turtles but unfortunately they were not there. Maybe there is more chance if the weather is... More

Despite how busy this beach was, it was one of our favorites. We'd mostly been on the north side up until this beach and we weren't used to all the sun!! Wear sunscreen! Especially if you are snorkeling. It wasn't "hot" so we didn't think much of it and spent the rest of the trip as KFC (Kauai fried chickens!).... More

Great beach to see the Sun rise in Kauai. Located just minutes from several resorts. Plenty of free parking. Has a lifeguard. Popular spots for seal sightings!!!
