Rent equipment from Snorkel Bob in Koloa and go for it. Great variety of colorful fish and even sea turtles.

“Excellent snorkeling”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great reef - in one afternoon viewed sea turtle, eels, and tons of fish. Free public parking available, bathrooms, showers, and a few picnic tables. Slight drop of in some areas and surf can be strong for poor swimmers, but wadable in many areas too.

“Family Friendly”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great little area to bring children but need to watch out for the rocks! If the children venture out in the water, remind them to stay away from the rocks or they will get cut.

“Sea Turtles and Monk Seals at Poipu Beach”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A great family beach, shallow area to the left of the life guard house good for young children, good snorkeling, some buggy boarding over by the Marriott. Over all a great place to spend the day, also plenty of parking. The beach is frequently visited by Monk Seals and on occasion a sea turtle may also come on shore so bring your camera.

“Poipu Beach Park”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

I did not read any reviews before going to the park we just wanted to go there. I brought my snorkeling gear and was pleasantly surprised to see the protective cove there. It was a great place to snorkel. i posted a You Tube video of my adventure called Poipu Beach Park 10-31-12 of the underwater creatures. Tons of fish and many different kinds ere there. A seal laid on the sand at the very point the whole time we were there. And a turtle tried to come ashore but too many people were there snapping pictures. All in all the beach park is a nice place to go for all ages even toddlers. I would definitely recommend.
Almost forgot, lifeguard is on duty and there is plenty of free parking.
