"The Perfect Hawaiian Beach"
"America's Best Beach"
Three different crescent white sand beaches with beautiful turquoise blue water make up this popular stretch of coastline. Beginning at the Sheraton Kauai Resort going southeast to Poipu Beach Park, you’ll find excellent swimming, world-class snorkeling, surfing and plenty of shade beneath swaying palm trees. You might get lucky enough and be visited by the Hawaiian monk seal on Nukumoi Point.
This is a great family destination with water activities for kids of all ages from younger less experienced swimmers to the older ones who want to catch a bit of surf. There is a lifeguard on duty at Poipu Beach Park for novice swimmers.
Poipu is great as a stopover on your tour around the island or for a day-long beach outing. This is a popular beach. For choice parking and activities, be sure to arrive early.
You’ll find restrooms, showers and picnic tables at Poipu Beach Park with snorkel and surfboard rentals nearby.
