Good beach park in the south shore of Kauai. Poipu beach is good for snorkeling, especially for kids, because of the shallow water. However, you should also pay attention, because you can also easily cut yourself on the reefs. There is quite a variety of...More

Great parking....sandy beach....lava area of beach....pavilions...restrooms....etc I actually went to this beach twice since if you are coming off the main road across southern Kauai, you approach it through the Tunnel of Trees road. Also, it is only 30 minutes or so from Lihue.

Definitely rent an umbrella and snorkel equipment before heading to this beach. Very easy snorkeling on one side and swimming on the other. Also a great place to spot (from a distance of course!) turtles and a monk seal in the morning.

This was the busiest beach we have been to in Kauai so far. Not very scenic as it’s crowded and surrounded by buildings. Calm area for swimming and easy snorkeling. Fair amount of fish but nothing dramatic.

Poipu Beach Park is considered to be a “Top 10 Beach” in Kauai on multiple websites and in numerous publications, and deservedly so! The snorkeling and swimming are magnificent due to the reef which keeps the water calm, also making this the perfect beach for...More

Out of all the beaches I visited in Kauai this was the most touristy. It has all the amenities including good restaurants and bars. The mainly sandy beach west of the parking area (in front of the Radison resort) was best for swimming while the...More
