This is such a great place to start snorkeling! Every time we visit we find new sea creatures! From snowflake eels, urchins, sea turtles, seals, devil scorpion fish, lots of fishes from unicorns and tangs. The area to the left (east) is easier for beginners or if there is a red flag to the west side area of poipu beach.... More

compared to other beaches, this one is average. Good snorkelling apparently, judging by the number of people in the water doing so. Monk seal was on the shore the day we were there. Would be good for little kids, water is not too rough, but it was busy.

This is our favourite beach. Always see seals beached here. Snorkelling is great and just an all round awesome place.

Nice for beginner snorkelling and protected beach for our 4 year old twins. New Years Eve here was also a blast.

A beautiful park with a beach. Very family friendly. The fireworks were fun and well attended. Bring a mat or chair and your favorite beverage.

This beach has an amazing sunset view and if you wait till after dark, you can go see the beached turtles over night. But please don't put your cell phone lights on them!! They don't like it and we don't want them to stop coming to the beach. Stay for a while and watch the sunset!

Maybe it was the time of year however the beach was not as amazing as the travel guides said. The sheltered area was good for young kids however as soon as we ventured away the bottom was rough and we had to tread carefully...even so my niece was stung by a sea urchin. Quite a different experience at Hanalie bay... More
