Poipu Beach Park
If you're looking for an H2O destination that's worthy of awards, Poipu Beach Park is the place for you. Lauded as one of America's Best Beaches" by the Travel Channel, Poipu consistently ranks among the top 10 "Best" beaches nationwide. Boasting soft, golden sand and picturesque conditions perfect for families, Poipu Beach Park is a must-visit when traveling along Kauaʻi’s south shore.
Poipu is not your typical beach park. This popular destination features a tombola that separates its two bays, where one area of the beach offers ideal conditions for wading and bodyboarding and the other area features shallow shores and a protected zone for free-water swimming. The endangered Hawaiian monk seals gravitate toward the tombola, and if you keep an eye out, you just might spot one napping along the sand! If you do see a Hawaiian monk seal during your visit to Poipu Beach Park, please keep a respectful distance and don’t disturb them!
In addition to water activities, beachgoers can also enjoy a relaxing day picnicking and playing games on the green. Nearby there’s a children's playground, surfboard and snorkel rental stands and picnic tables for those spending the day at Poipu and waiting to catch the sunrise.
