We stayed in Poipu for 7 nights starting on 22nd August 2013. We drove to many beaches, of which all were beautiful, however we likes Poipu as even when it was raining about 1 mile away the beach always had sunshine.

We went right as the sun was setting and the views were breathtaking! We also happened to be there when a seal was napping on the beach! The guards had roped off the area around the seal to prevent people from disturbing it. They were very knowledgable about seals and happy to share facts!

Snorkeling, boogie boarding, surfing, laying around. All of these are options at this beach along with a very clean sand and grass area to hang out. The bathrooms, as usual in Kauai, were very clean too. Restaurant across the street and short walk down to other shopping, restaurant, gelato and coffee options.

There were enough waves to make it fun but not so rough that we were worried for the kids. There's a life guard on duty as well. The water is so clear and the scenery is just incredible. A great day at the beach.

This is a great beach and it's perfect for kids. Dont be surprised when the monk seals or turtles show up and want to share your beach space :) A perfect spot for beginners and kids to snorkel.

A lot of the locals come here. So it is more crowded than our hotel resort beach is much nicer. Great for picnics.
