Best Beach we found on the Island to take our toddler. The protected cove is perfect for swimming. I cannot tell you how many times we saw turtles and seals from/on the beach. Very accessible and all the necessary beach amenities are right there.

We had high hopes for this Kauai beach but found it to be very rocky and crowded. I would not recommend going out of your way for it.

The beach is breathtaking. We rented a private cottage about a block from Poupi beach and loved all eight days. There is little traffic, respectful beach visitors and the sunsets are the best in the world. There are monk seals that come ashore to rest...More

It would be good for beginner snorkeling! It is protected by a reef so water is not rough. You need to be aware that in some spots the distance between rock and water surface is very very shallow and you need to be careful... More

this seems to be the warmest part of the island.
