There a two sides of Poipu Beach. One side you go surfing and see the sea monks on the other side you have a beautiful area to snorkel along turtles and lot of exotic fishes in a tiny but colourful reef. Better not to go on weekends, then it is more crowded than the other days. Beautiful beachside!

Amazing grassy areas to hangout and view the crescent beach. The main part of the beach offers some sand with a jetty that blocks off the surf so it becomes a calm quaint bay. It was packed with people and families. I found myself here due to harsh rain in the North that afternoon on my way back from Waimea... More

If you visit this beach early in the morning, by 8 am or so, you almost always see a few sea turtles and a monk seal on the sand, and the snorkeling is cool, uncrowded and super fun. By 10:00 it begins to get crowded, and you'll get a fin in the face if you try snorkeling. Early morning and... More

Loved it, loved it, loved it. Spent every morning on this beach during my visit in March. The diversity of fish and view were spectacular. Even got to see a whale breach just off the edge of the coral off the beach. Can't wait to go back again!

One of the prettier beaches we saw on the south shore and easy to park at. We enjoyed the north shore beaches more but they are a 2 hr drive from this spot.

On Wednesday August 19, 2015, my wife and I brought our youngest daughter to swim at Po'ipu Beach right in front of Brenneckes. It was a little bit crowded but the weather was nice and sunny, perfect weather to enjoy the ocean. We stayed there at least two hours in the water and then left. I had great conversation with...

We were lucky enough to come across a huge sea turtle about 7am one morning, who had come on shore (presumably to lay eggs ) and then re-entered the water. We kept our distance, but went in behind her a few minutes later after strapping on our gear, and there she was swimming among smaller turtles. My kids were awestruck.... More

Great place for seeing wild life while in a relatively safe lifeguarded beach. There's a wading bay full of baby sea creatures. There are bathrooms, a bar and shaved ice just across the street.

Talk about beautiful, this place is unbelieveable. Snorkeling surfing, it's all here. Not too crowded at all.
