Fodor's Review

The most popular beach on the South Shore is Poipu Beach Park. During calm seas, the snorkeling and swimming are good, and when the surf's up, the bodyboarding and surfing are good, too. Frequent sunshine, grassy lawns and easy access add to the appeal, especially with families. The beach is frequently crowded and great for people-watching. Even the endangered Hawaiian monk seal often makes an appearance. Amenities: lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets; food and

drink. Best for: swimming and snorkeling; partiers; walking.

Snorkeling was great

We enjoyed watching the two sleeping monk seals that were there the morning we snorkeled at this beach. As beginner snorklers, this was a good place to be- very easy with snall waves because of the reef. It's fun to watch the surfers farther out.

Po'ipu Beach is a nice, easy to access beach. We came here in the late afternoon and then went to Brennecke's for dinner. For ambience, local flavor and food, Brennecke's is a must on Kauai.
