Poipu Beach Park, Poipu

4.6
#1 of 26 in Beaches in Kauai
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.

    Great beach for families, there's a great shore break to protect you from surf, surprisingly good snorkeling although almost no coral (plenty of fish though). There's a large sandy area that's 0-18 inches deep - perfect for toddler beach goers. There are other beaches nearby that are great for older swimmers. We also found the lifeguard to be VERY professional - and knowledgeable about the sea life found on the beach. There's even grass and shade nearby to get out of the sun. Its an excellent beach although it can get a bit crowded on the sand. There are restrooms available in the park right off the beach (They are not clean - but not disgusting either. They ARE convenient).
