Let’s be honest - hundreds of people slathered in sunscreen with waves crashing onto the beach in two directions does not make for good snorkeling. If you decide to waste your time will you see fish? Yes. Will it be anything exciting? No. Fish live...More

Lovely sheltered bay, easily accessible by pathways. Incredibly clear water, excellent for snorkeling. There were seals and turtles every day.

This is a very highly rated beach and those ratings are absolutely true. Its crowded, but that's fine as there are essentially three or four different beaches that make up the park. If you are anywhere nearby you should ABSOLUTELY check this out.

Poipu Beach is an excellent place to readily see abundant varieties of fish immediately as you get in the water. The current can be a bit rough so if you want to snorkel, you should be comfortable in the water with fairly good swimming skills....More

If swimming with abundant tropical fish and turtles is your thing Poipu beach should be perfect. Lots of nearby parking and a lifeguarded beach makes it ideal for families. Introduced our granddaughter to snorkelling and she loved it. A store and restaurant across the road...More

Beautiful beach on the south side of the island of Kauai. Family friendly with all the facilities you need for a day at the beach. Shallow area for the little ones. Great snorkeling! Although the water is shallow, the water is super clear with lots...More

Fun beach. Good snorkeling, especially for amateurs, waves were fun to use floats on, some shade to prevent sunburns, even a seal sleeping on the sand! Will definitely go back again when in Kauai.

The dryer part of Kauai is worth thinking about as in Hanalei its morning swim or enjoy clouds and drizzle while at the beach ... Poipu is an alternative - as its less rainy although its further from incredible Hanakapia trail and from secluded beautiful...More

If I understand your question, rent a car through Costco. You don’t need a Jeep (unless you’re going off road somewhere that I don’t know about) or a convertible on Kaua’i ( because it rains a lot and you’ll look like a... More

We saw one dog outside of the beach area. Unsure if they are technically allowed, though.
