“Great beach if you are with kids!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I like this beach if I'm with small children (during the summer months). The surf is small or non existent, you can walk across the street to Brennecke's restaurant or deli (I highly recommend them). But, if you are looking for some real waves or you are not a family, then go next door to the beach between the Sheraton and Kiahuna Plantation. We spent a little time here as a couple but it was just a little too packed with families for what we were looking for. Sheraton's beach was better.

“Awesome waves during swells”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Fabulous to watch surfers and boogie boarders fly in the air and do full summersaults when thrown by the huge waves during a storm swell. Unless you are excellent swimmer, don't go in during storms or swells, just watch the wipe-outs.

“Busy Boogie Boarding Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Very crowded but best beach in this area to Boogie Board. Fun for adults and kids (7 and up). Highly recommend going in the afternoon until sunset.

“Foodborne illness suspected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Last Thursday, having spent some time at the beach near Brennecke's I decided to enjoy a lunch there. But it turned into a disappointment for me. The Seviche Salad I ordered was not palatable. The freshness of ingredients became questionable as after eating only two small pieces of the fish I had to abandon the meal. Later that afternoon I experienced symptoms indicative of a foodborne illness, feeling nauseous, having chills and ensuing digestive problems. Three days later the discomfort persists.
My suggestion is to remove Seviche from the Menu, in all meal varieties.

“A little on the small side.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

One of the two beaches on the poipu side of Kauai. It's a little on the small side but it's very calm and good for snorkeling. Being as this beach is on the southern coast line of Kauai, it has the very best of weather conditions, year round. Brenneckers bar and grill is right across the street, so you can easily get a quick drink if you're so inclined. We were there during the height of the whaling watching season in early february. Not a whole lot of whales to be seen. Maybe the whales take different route around Kauai. Anyways you still get great beach time.
