Holiday Travel Guide
Poipu Beach showing a sandy beach

Visit one of the world’s best beaches, with coves of white sand and clear water decorating the Sunny South Side.

Poipu Beach consists of three scenic stretches of white sand on the southern coast of the beautiful island of Kauai. The site also has a tree-lined park with paths and idyllic picnic spots offering outstanding views of the water. Enjoy the serene and picturesque setting as you wander along the three curved crescents of white sand.

Read a book or simply relax in the shade of a swaying palm tree. Sunbathe on the warm, white sand to work on your tan under the year-round sun. The beach is particularly busy on weekends, as it is among Hawaii’s most popular sandy havens. Snap photos of the scenic backdrop of forests and rocky outcrops.

Go for a swim in the calm water to cool down, while fish dart around your feet. The middle sections of the crescents are the best for families due to the calmer water. Play ball games with your kids in the natural ocean wading pool. Lifeguards patrol the sandy area of Poipu Beach Park. Spend the afternoon here and use the showers, restrooms and picnic tables.

Snorkeling gear is available for rent at the many resorts in the Poipu area. Search with your family for the exotic fish swimming around in the ocean. Bring a board and head to a rocky outcrop for surfing, body boarding and other watersports. Experienced surfers should head to the surf break over the reef.

Enjoy lunch or dinner at a bar or restaurant at the back of the beach. Stay at one of the resorts and hotels here.

Poipu Beach is part of its namesake commune on the southern coast of Kauai. It is just east of the Nu Kumoi Point and overlooks the Pacific Ocean. See the nearby sights, such as Poipu Fine Arts, Kiahuna Beach and Mano Okalanipo Park.
