Relax at Po'ipu Beach

Added by Elena Pearson

A beautiful beach on the south shore of Kauai.

This is a big beach park.  There are large grassy areas with trees that are perfect to hammock in.  There are also many picnic tables.  The are two sides to the beach, with one side being very kid-friendly.  

The waves can crash very hard into the rocks and create a lot of spray.  There are little tide pools to explore, but always be careful of incoming waves.

Great beach stop

Stopped hear after leaving the airport. Had never been to the south of Kauai before so this was a great stop. The beach and town were both great.

Gorgeous but be careful

Our condo was near this beach so we came here often. Beautiful area that’s somewhat sheltered, but be careful of the rocks. I ended up cutting my foot, so just look out!

Beautiful beach!

I don’t think a bad beach exists on Kauai! This one is beautiful! Plus it’s in a fun town/city to explore!
