Create an itinerary including Poipu Beach Park
Part of South Shore's popular beach, Poipu Beach Park is a good location for relaxing or partaking in beach activities. Go for a walk along the sand, or take a dip in the clear water. Snorkelers can spot sea turtles and colorful fish. Explore tide pools, and admire the collection of coral and shells. Keep an eye out for the monk seals that like to visit the beach. This area can experience strong tides that could make it dangerous to swim, so heed the lifeguards. Surfers and boogie boarders will find an area just for them. Plan my day in Koloa using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Klarna Trips.

  • Was a very nice little beach. I really enjoyed the sunset while I was there. The chickens were also very entertaining and rambunctious. As with any ocean venue, use caution and pay attention to all of the warnings posted for your safety. This area has strong currents and is openly posted. Come prepared and informed of all conditions. Sunscreen should also be mentioned and used.
  • Beautiful beach for sunset. Waves are calm to see turtles and seals at sunset Calm enough durning the day to snorkel. Nice variety of fish to see but reef is quite grey. Bring a beach chair and umbrella. Some days you can find people placing volleyball. Nice eateries close and free parking lot available.
  • Awesome to visit. I was so excited to see the sea turtles come into shore and fall asleep on the beach. The sunset was spectacular. One may snorkel, swim, watch the sea turtles and a seal close to the shore. A very beautiful beach to schedule in your itinerary.
  • Great beach, great for snorkeling (also for beginners). When we went we got too see a couple of turtles chilling on the beach and a Hawaiian monk seal sleeping on the beach and lots of fishes on the reef. Lifeguards are very alert and make sure people and animals are safe.
  • Great place to surf and swim. Beaches in Hawaii can be dangerous, but this is one you should feel safe at. Lifeguards are posted here with a rescue jet ski on standby. Plenty of marine life. Today we saw three sea turtles basking in the sun. In the past I've seen Monk Seals here. Parking might be a problem as this is a popular place to hang out. Lots of picnic tables and some shade available. Bathrooms on site as well with a shower station outside.
