Can snorkel off the beach and see a variety of fish, coral and other marine life. Great place to see sunset.

Kids area for swimming, deeper areas for snorkelling and swimming, rock tide pools, surf, playground, picnic tables and a place to fly kites. It never felt overly crowded either, but there were plenty of people enjoying the area. We saw a turtle on the beach and while snorkelling in the water. Lots of tiny fish, hermit crabs and baby eels... More

We saw so many fish, even though we got tossed around a bit by the waves. This is a very safe beach, but go early to stake out your place in the sand.

It's another must see, the ocean is always a pleasure to watch especially with all the surfers surfing the waves....the water was warm and the beach is clean.

This would not be your deserted beach on the Pacific. This beach was interesting to me because of the tombolo, which is a piece of sand with ocean on both sides. You can walk aways out of to it and see surf on both sides. The beach has really nice restrooms, changing areas and a shower, a lifeguard, covered picnic... More

Had some good sun times at Poipu Beach Park. Was fairly crowded and parking can be an issue so if you can walk to beach, best way to go. Beach is nice sand, warm and has life guards on duty.

We are amateur snorkelers and found this to be a lovely beach to do some shallow snorkeling. Parked across the street with no problems.

It was great beach for kids, you can snorkel at the shallow water and still able to see beautiful fish! The sea turtle and a seal came out to shore and it was just amazing!

We love Poipu beach park!! I ran by one morning and spotted a large turtle sleeping in the sand. The next day my husband and I were on the beach in the early afternoon, we saw whale not far from shore flapping it's tail. The snorkeling is always good at Poipu for the family.

Poipu beach park is a wonderful place to spend time. The snorkeling is good, the beach is gorgeous, and the park is clean and well maintained. There are three distinct beaches in the park--the first is great for playing in the waves and boogie boarding, the second is a gentle, more protected area that is great for kids, and the... More
