Poipu Beach Park - Description

Located on Kauai's sunny south shore, about a half-hour drive southwest of Lihue, this beach park once crowned among the top beaches in the U.S. Poipu Beach. Some of the most exclusive resorts, stores and restaurants are located here. Thus, the bay enjoys great popularity among its visitors.

Poipu Beach features crystal clear waters, fine white sand, tropical and biodiverse marine life, green sea turtles and endangered Hawaiian monk seals.

Unique and spectacular is the narrow sandbar that divides the beach into two sections. The water here is very calm on one side and just perfect to explore the breathtaking underwater world of the reef while snorkeling. On the other side of the sandbar, the conditions are ideal for swimming in the gentle waves or surfing with a bodyboard.

The sea at Poipu Beach is calm, so that even smaller children can swim here safely and relaxed. Due to the adjacent restaurants and stores, all wishes are fulfilled here.
