Nearly all visitors to Kauai will agree that Poipu Beach Park is the undisputed darling of Kauai’s south shore. Located nearby to a number of popular south shore beach resorts, Poipu Beach Park offers pristine snorkeling during the winter months, advanced surfing during the summer months, and ample stretches of golden sand for laying a towel out during any time of the year. The beach itself is broken up into two separate bays, one of which is calm and good for small children since it is protected by an offshore reef. The other side of the beach is much more exposed to ocean swells and provides experienced snorkelers with a tropical playground that is considered by most to be the best snorkeling on the island’s south shore.
