The waves were HUGE when we where at Brennecke's beach, which was great for us and our teenagers. Younger children can catch the smaller waves closer to shore. Rocky on either side, so make sure to steer clear! Two or three turtles were bobbing around...More

Good food, yummy drinks, beautiful view, great service. We met friends for drinks one night and returned another evening and enjoyed dinner with six of our friends. We had a great time. Service was good.

We came here after visiting Old Koloa Town and were delighted to see a relatively quiet, sandy and south facing beach which is great for families. Restaurants are close by and there are also picnic tables.

Good beach for snorkeling and a little swimming. Small and south facing. Poipu beach is probably better but this beach is not crowded and you can find parking

Not to crowded and a nice beach. Nice place to snorkel (bring your own gear, no rental at the beach). Several pick nick tables offer a place to sit. Restaurants are nearby so all you need for a perfect day on the beach.

Came here from a 5 minute walk from the condo. Rough waves on the left. Nice sandy (with some rocks) on the right. Caught some waves with the boogie board and my daughter loved it.

Casual lunch . Limited menu but ok. Food was cold. Service was good. Not cheap. Coconut shrimp was excellent.

We spent a few hours here, and this was one of the highlights of our visit to Kauai. Our kids had never boogie boarded before, and our son is not a great swimmer and does not like salt water. But they spent hours here, and...More

We never saw so many surfers and boogies boarders having the time of their lives before in one place! Just a short walk on the lawn east from Poipu Beach is a small, unprotected lava rock lined sandy beach with a continuous swell of unstoppable...More
