Mediocre beach at best.
Oct. 2021 • Couples
This beach is very small and very rocky for most of it. It wasn’t terribly busy when we were there, and there still wasn’t a lot of room. I can’t imagine going during a busy season. Not one of the top 10 beaches in Kauai.

Lovely site for swimming-lots of turtles. Great grassy park, too. Brennecke's restaurant across the street.

Great snorkel spot!
Oct. 2021 • Couples
Great snorkeling spot on the right hand side of Poipu beach.

We were able to walk directly from the Sheraton on the boardwalk in the morning.

We saw green sea turtles and a TON of beautiful fish in the surprisingly clear water near the rocks. Also pulled up a Hawaiian reef crab that was really big :)

LOVED IT

Great snorkeling
Aug. 2021
We saw several turtles on the beach each day we came. There are bathrooms and a few places to eat. The ocean floor is very rocky and not sandy, but it makes for great snorkeling. We saw tons of fish

Poipu Beach - 5 stars
Poipu Beach is a great park for hanging out and snorkeling. It’s a bit busy, but has easy access to snorkeling with beautiful fish. We even saw an octopus and eels! Parts of the area are shallow for snorkeling, but it was easy to find deeper water. There were also 1 or 2 endangered monk seals on the small island beach. There are public restrooms and showers for rinsing off afterwards.

Great beach with view of sunset
Sep. 2021 • Family
This beach is lovely. Plenty of parking, washrooms and home of Puka Dog, another restaurant and a deli.
There are picnic tables and a covered picnic area and a playground. There are tons of chickens roaming around the grass areas.
It is a great spot to watch the sunset.
There is a shallow area almost enclosed by rocks and larger open areas of beach as well.
After sunset you can see the turtles come on shore to rest…..but be respectful and stay far back and do not take flash photography as it hurts their eyes.

Beautiful place to watch sunset and see sea turtles
Oct. 2021 • Friends
We went at sunset upon recommendation of someone we met while here. It was very crowded for sunset but beautiful views.

If you stay after sunset, the sea turtles come up on the beach. We waited probably 10 minutes after sunset before they started coming up! Definitely worth it to wait and see!

Average tourist beach
Sep. 2021 • Couples
Highly over rated, too many people, too many people snorkeling that have no idea what they are doing. If you want a quiet beach or a good snorkeling beach drive around a fund a place to have your solitude.

Go early to get parking!
Sep. 2021
Nice beach and area for kids to swim in. Can get very crowded there, so parking can be an issue. It is walkable from several of the Poipu resorts - some hills.

Poipu Beach , home to many hanu on island.
Sep. 2021
Poipu Beach is a lovely beach that many honu call home. Be mindful that they are sometimes hard to see when you are entering the water. Don't step an these beautiful turtles. In fact , you must give them space where ever they are on the beach or in the water. This is their home and laws protect them not the tourist in this case. Do not ever touch these beautiful creatures. Your Zoom lense works beautifully to get upclose and personal. Its the only way.
