Poipu beach park was awesome. It's a great place for kids to swim and play in the sand, as the beach is shaped like a semi-circle and it creates it's own natural barrier to high surf, and the surf is already less intense on the south side of the island. They have a playground, lots of green space for the... More

Poipu Beach Park is a major tourist attraction on the south side of the island. The shores are covered with high caliber hotels and resorts. Traffic can be horrendous in this area, so go early to get a parking space. The beach itself is beautiful and the snorkeling is less than average. If you do go to snorkel be sure... More

This beach is very busy. It's great for snorkeling but crowded. There are better hidden beaches in my opinion. But it is conveniently located to many hotels, restaurants and shops. It also has lifeguards for extra safety and a great spot for younger kids so one of the top beaches if you have young children.

Great beach. Lots of room. Washrooms and showers available. Lots of parking. Safe for kids. Good snorkelling. I snorkelled with my 9 year old. Saw some big tropical fish. Monk seal resting on the beach in a protected area. A volunteer sat all day and watched that the seal stayed safe. He was super helpful and informative. My son sat... More

Absolutely lovely beach. Was busy, but you can walk and get away from all of the people easily enough. Restaurants near by if needed. Foot washes. Love the water. It's cool and refreshing.

We spent our last day of vacation here- definitely a great beach. Very close to many resorts, a decent bit of public parking, bathrooms and space. A great place to snorkel- stop at Kimo's just a quarter mile down the road- to pick up snorkel gear and a beach chair for the day. We had so much fun seeing the... More
