Small beach but lots of parking. Facilities, lifeguard, and outdoor shower. Beside the Sheraton Beach. Good for snorkeling. Small area. Very shallow (husband scratch his knee twice). But surprisingly lots to see. Saw 3 eels. 1 very large sea turtle. And lots of different colored fish. Also a beautiful spot for the sunset. Stopped by Maki Sushi twice and had... More

We took our 2 and 4 year old there. Super safe and fun. There were two huge sea turtles sleeping on the beach, so cool! Great spot for sure. Adults can snorkel a little right next door too.

Beautiful sunny beach on a south side of Kauai island. Great spot for snorkeling and relax. Monk seals are frequent guests on this beach, every time I went there I saw one or two each time

Great place to catch a sunset, especially if you need to be on that side of the island to catch a late flight. Lots of good restaurants in the area too.

Fun time at this beach, snorkeling, wading, laying in the sun. We saw whales a couple of different times. Smiling faces all around, cool beach.

We stayed in Kapaa and saw many beautiful sunrises but on our last day, we visited Poipu Beach to see a sunset and we were not disappointed. I always thought the "green light" was a myth and I didn't see it, but my husband swears he did! This is THE place to see a sunset on Kauai!

Our family loves Kauai and we always stay in Poipu. Poipu beach is a nice beach,clean and the snorkeling is pretty good. I have to say before the last hurricane the beach and snorkeling were better. The best part is the turtles seem to love this area. While there we saw three different Monk Seals and three large Sea Turtles.... More

Lovely beach at midday, at sunset, on a weekend with ukulele players. Clean beach with facilities, tables, lots of signs to protect seals, turtles, and coral.

Good place to lounge about, snokel or watch wildlife. Eventhough in midst of tourist area it does not feel overly busy. Seals especially come ashore here. Can see dolphins and turtles in area and see whales out offshore in season. Good parking.
