The Worlds Best Beaches - Poipu Beach

Poipu Beach on the island of Kauai is probably the most stunning beach of the Hawaiian archipelago. It is popular both for its serenity and beauty, but also because it is a great place to visit with your friends or family to indulge in activities such as camping, hiking, swimming, surfing, scuba diving and much more. Expect lots of fun, and lots of sun shining on its yellow sands. But expect also to have to share these sands with local monk seals!

"Poipu Beach is most famous for being a place where the endangered Hawaiian Monk seals sometimes sunbathe unabashedly on the shore. There are roughly only 1,300 Hawaiian Monk Seals remaining and about 20 swim in the waters of Kauai." (Gohawaii.com)

  1. Was in Poipu a year ago this week, and it's GOT to be up there among having the best beaches. Loved it!(And love this blog, by the way)

  2. Wrong side of the island. Any of the beaches in Haena park on the northwest side are better.
