Accessible to the general public it has a nice area to enjoy a picnic. The pristine beach and lush green surrounding makes a great place to swim or just relax in the sun. If you're not in the mood for a picnic, you have several great restaurants in the vicinity to dine at. A couple of miles away you can... More

Nice sandy beach. No undertow like at the Grand Hyatt's beach, which has the red flags flying everyday.

A very family friendly beach. More crowded than other beaches but nice nonetheless. People were snorkeling, swimming and sun bathing.

This is a really nice beach for both families and snorkelers. Parking for the beach is a little tight and you need to get there early.

This beach park was the perfect location for us. We have a toddler and part of the beach has a small lagoon without the waves and is only 3 feet deep. Water is clear and calm. Views are spectacular. There are restrooms and showers also available or a restaurant across the street if you are hungry. Parking is limited, so... More

Overall it is a pretty nice beach for swimming/snorkeling and to relax at. The best part of the beach which keeps bringing us back is seeing the sea life. Multiple large turtles can be found on the beach and in the water as well as the Hawaiian monk seal. Being able to lay out on the beach close to a... More

Great sand, good for the kids. The breaks aren't too rough for the little ones. Saw a monk seal and large sea turtle right on the beach. Lifeguard on duty as well. Nice area with restaurants...

Great beach. Protected waters for kids but views and access to the full surf as well. At low tide you can walk out further on to a band bar and explore the tide pools in the exposed lava flows that reveal all sorts of creatures. We were treated to the slow arrival of a Monk seal as she lay first... More

We went to this beach twice in July (1st at 8a.m. - very uncrowded, 2nd at 2pm - super crowded, but OK). On both days the waves were pretty rough elsewhere, but particularly on the protected portion of Poipu Beach, it was calm. We had with us a 6 year old who swam well, but had never snorkeled. We had... More
