The rocks catch the salt water at high tide. Then at low tide they dry up . The rocks protect the beach from the ocean waves to give calm waters at lower tides.

This beach is more secluded than others. It’s smaller and much quieter than most. Great for families with younger children because there’s an area that is calm for the kiddos to play in. Good place to soak up some sun and enjoy the day!

We just came for sunset. It was gorgeous. You can tell this beach is popular with the locals. The wash house is under construction but they have porta potties.

it's so wonderful to find beaches that are not overcrowded! A definite gem to visit. Perfect for a relaxing day. Like all other beaches in Kauai, easy cleanup from saltwater after a days swim!

Most people who visit Poipu stay near the point and beaches there. I encourage you to drive a little further to this beach. It is bigger, there are at least two long sandy crescents, and the waters are protected by reef's that calm the bigger...More
