This is one of the better areas to stay/visit with a family. Safe manmade sea pools, several aina, barbecue facilities, beach showers, and food and drink are readily available. There are also lots of chickens, which the little ones found entertaining. Just watch where you enter the water; there are a number of rocky areas.

After spending several vacations in Kauai and beach-hopping all around the island, we have come to the conclusion that Poipu Beach is our all-time favorite beach in Kauai. It has consistent waves, good for surfing, boogie-boarding or playing in, and the most wonderful shoreline around. The sand is very soft and easy to walk in and play in. There is... More

This beach was nice. It was very busy. There are other beaches on the island that are just as nice and less busy. This beach is nice for people with kids because there is a shallow area that is kind of closed in.

Beautiful sandy beach, backed by greenery. Nice bay with some reefs to snorkel on. Gentle waves and perfect water temperature. Didn't want to get out once we were in!

We were here for the day with my 80something mother. It was great to see so many people, but for a weekday, it was still crowded. I guess the summer hadn't ended yet so lots of traveling children enjoying the beach. The beach is protected in some areas and in others has some nice wave action. I would love to... More

I stayed in nearby Poipu Kai Resort and walked through the park and beach area several times. Got in once with my noodle and just cooled off in the ocean. There is a mini sandbar that separates two swimming areas and it was a nice place to just float and relax. Nice picnic area with restrooms and outdoor showers to... More

This was one of our favorite beaches on Kauai. It is very beautiful, well-maintained, and even has its own mascot! (Sometimes the Poipu Beach Seal will come to visit) :) Some of the shores are a little rocky for swimming, but it's still worth a few afternoons with the family.
