The south shore of Kauai is home to a number of excellent beaches that are good for a vast array of water sports, outstanding sunsets or just sitting by the beach. In fact, Poipu beach has been rated the best in America for three consecutive years (2002-2004) beating out a host of great beaches. There is an onsite playground, grassy areas, picnic tables, and bathroom facilities for guests to use, plus there is plenty of parking spaces for guests.
Whales have been known to lurk offshore and sightings are not uncommon here. Guests should bring binoculars if they choose to come to this beach, in order to better spot these indigenous marine mammals. Tortoises and monk seals are typical onshore sights. The snorkeling at this beach is also quite good and those who do so will spot a good variety of marine life.
