“Grew on me once the sun came out.”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Came first on a rainy afternoon as part of a run, did not look very impressive. In the sun it was a different story. Certainly not a huge beach, and nowhere near the most scenic on Kauai (hands down Hanalei Beach Park and Tunnels are superior). But solid snorkeling due to protected location. Kind of busy. Beach park was nice but again not huge. Probably not worth the glowing ratings it seems to get, maybe it benefits from the fun fact that 'it is always sunny in Poipu' (as per my review, not 100% accurate, but it is DEFINITELY sunny more often here than most places on the island, so if it is raining where you are, head here).

“great for snorkeling”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

This is a lovely beach with ample parking. We visited twice, specifically to snorkel, and were not disappointed. The highlight was seeing a sea turtle not too far from shore. The 2nd visit was on a rather nasty rainy day, but we snorkeled anyway, despite the poor weather (we were stubborn). We still saw a good amount of sea life, including a monk seal taking the longest nap ever on the beach. We also saw a whale spouting in the distance when we first arrived which was also interesting.

“Nice beach”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Great beach for small children as well as adults. Good snorkeling and nice beach. There were bathrooms and a lifeguard and a playground for children. Sea turtles and Monk seals come up on the beach on occasion.
