How is the beach for swimming at Waipouli Beach Resort?

We are trying to decide between Kiahuna Plantation/ Poipu Beach vs. WBR for next January. How is the beach for swimming in front of the WBR? We will have our 2 young children with us as well and love to spend time in the ocean more so than the pool.

The Kiahuna Plantation in Poipu has a wonderful swimming beach right there. The beach in front of the Waipouli Beach Resort in Kapaa is not a swimming beach.

In the Poipu area you'll also be close driving distance to Hoona Beach AKA "Baby Beach" as well, for variety. In Kapaa, you'll be within driving distance to Lydgate Beach Park which is also safe for swimming.

If I were you, I'd go for the convenience of Kiahuna, if you will be spending a lot of time swimming near your condo.

With children or not, the beach in front of Waipouli Beach Resort is no swimmable. Your best bet for January would be the South Shore/Poipu area.

WBR's beach isn't good for swimming anytime of the year. KP has a far superior beach and besides it's a much nicer area.

Although the beach area at WBR is not swimmable the pool area is very nice. They do have a small "beach" area with sand for kids to play in. We enjoyed the east side as it was central to everything.
