Really picturesque bay, with Hawaiian monk seals sun baking next you and turtles swimming with the snorkelers! safe for swimming and perfect for sunsets
This is a good beach to snorkel at. Easy to get too and plenty of parking. There are two small coves the one on the right is better for snorkeling.
Poipu beach is very close to the Grand Hyatt, so we figured we should check it out while on our honeymoon. Our concierge recommended getting mexican food at a local hole in the wall shop "Da Crack" which turned out to be delicious. We picked up the food and ate on the picnic tables right near the beach.

Both days that we visited this beach there were endangered monk seals hanging out on the beach. We spent our entire last day in Kauai at this beach.

Too bad there were no turtles around for us, but we did see a Hawaiian monk seal on the beach (x2). Very impressed with the efforts of the volunteers to share knowledge and protect the seals from the public. Very easy access beach with awesome snorkeling! Lots and lots to see. Good facilities, clean, appeared to be a safe atmosphere.... More
Great area to stay in on Kauai because of this beach. So many activities in one place for all levels and nice and safe in October. Definitely coming back. We travelled with our 5 month old and he loved being in the sea here too.

The facilities are good as well...outdoor showers (simple but effective), and restaurants nearby. Go early; it does get crowded later!
We were in Kauai for only 5 days but managed to make it to Poipu at least two of them. It is the most beautiful beach, not only on the surface but underwater as well. Don't forget your snorkel gear you might just see a turtle!!!
A great beach where part of it is walled off, but open enough to let fish in, playground, restrooms, parking lot, life guard, grass, picnic tables. What more is there?! My 9yo daughter enjoyed the snorkeling. It was her first time snorkeling outside of a swimming pool and the water stays shallow for a long ways out. Wear water shoes!... More
