After arriving at Poipu Beach walk just a few steps north around the corner in front of the Marriot the beach may be smaller but it is cleaner, less crowed and almost no chickens. It is a better swimming beach.

We totally loved the Poipu Beach Park. It is ideal for families with kids, sunsets are absolutely stunning and we came to watch turtles every evening. We even saw a monk seal here

It would be good for beginner snorkeling! It is protected by a reef so water is not rough. You need to be aware that in some spots the distance between rock and water surface is very very shallow and you need to be careful... More
