Both days that we visited this beach there were endangered monk seals hanging out on the beach. We spent our entire last day in Kauai at this beach. Even though it was busy it did not feel too crowded. It was a great way to relax and enjoy our final day. We were fortunate to have 2 monk seals hang out on the beach for most of the day and we also had at least 3 turtles come ashore throughout the day. The snorkelling is good we swam with turtles each time we snorkelled. Lots of parking close by and another beach within walking distance that is good for bogie boarding.

Too bad there were no turtles around for us, but we did see a Hawaiian monk seal on the beach (x2). Very impressed with the efforts of the volunteers to share knowledge and protect the seals from the public. Very easy access beach with awesome snorkeling! Lots and lots to see. Good facilities, clean, appeared to be a safe atmosphere. Would recommend it and certainly will return.

Great area to stay in on Kauai because of this beach. So many activities in one place for all levels and nice and safe in October. Definitely coming back. We travelled with our 5 month old and he loved being in the sea here too.

Poip beach is a nice beach for snorkeling. Check the waves and currents before you venture out, however.

....especially if you snorkel. I saw an amazing variety of fish and swam with several green turtles. Visibility could have been better, but I nonetheless had a wonderful time! The facilities are good as well...outdoor showers (simple but effective), and restaurants nearby. Go early; it does get crowded later!
