Create an itinerary including Poipu Beach Park
Part of South Shore's popular beach, Poipu Beach Park is a good location for relaxing or partaking in beach activities. Go for a walk along the sand, or take a dip in the clear water. Snorkelers can spot sea turtles and colorful fish. Explore tide pools, and admire the collection of coral and shells. Keep an eye out for the monk seals that like to visit the beach. This area can experience strong tides that could make it dangerous to swim, so heed the lifeguards. Surfers and boogie boarders will find an area just for them.

  • If you go at night you can see the turtles sleeping! We saw 11 of them. Just don't use flashlights/phone! Go at sunset as well! Great views and you're pretty much guaranteed a turtle spotting!

  • This is a classic Kauai beach you cannot miss, but set your expectations carefully. -We sat near Brennecke's Beach Broiler. There is not much food except Brennecke's -Come early. Parking is OK...

  • Lovely relaxed beach which is perfect for families and children of all ages. There's attentive lifeguards safeguarding both humans and wildlife. We saw 5 turtles and sea lions resting cordoned off so people can't go too close. There's a fantastic Deli for sandwiches and more nearby. Yet to try anything else but this beach was a hit for our first day in Kauai.
  • Perfect place for kids! There are small pools for younger kids and the beach is super safe for older kiddos. Amazing snorkeling in semi shallow water. We saw 3 Honu one day and an additional 2 another day. A seal also swam in the shallow water and laid on the beach for a while. Amazing experience.
