Recreation begins here for the south shore. There is a great protected area for swimming and snorkeling - with surf breaks offshore (for experienced surfers). Excellent facilities.
Poipu has recieved numerous "top 5" beach awards - both national and worldwide. On many "winter" days when the North shore is stormy and rough, Poipu is calm like a swimming pool.
Although the shoreline is mostly protected from large surf, dangerous conditions can exist in the water. Strong currents and waves breaking on reef. Sharp coral and slippery rocks.
Sandy and grassy shoreline protected by rocky jetties. Mixed reef and sand underwater.
Not Good For
If you are looking for privacy, Poipu might not be the spot. During warm summer months and peak holiday seasons Poipu can become very crowded.
