Nice beach, great snorkeling, and restrooms/showers right there. Good place to spend the day. Can be a little crowded, but not terrible.

Sand, sun and sea! Perfect! We were here after some torrential rain storms. A local told us to try Poipu Beach, the northern and eastern beaches would have brown water from the water coming from the mountains. They were right, but Poipu was clear and...More

We spent the better part of the day here at this beach. We went early and it was fairly empty but didn't take long to fill up with people. There was a seal sleeping on the beach when we got there. The lifeguard had it...More

North shore beaches are much more exotic and worth your time. This is still a nice beach to relax with lots of seals and turtles to see.

Poipu beach was enjoyable though I liked the Hanalei bay beach better. At Poipu we got to see Walrus and turtle sun bathing.

Not sure. Monk seals and turtles haul out there so I imagine if dogs are permitted, they are certainly not permitted near those animals. I saw no dogs on the beach anywhere.
