Soak in the Sunshine with the Top Things to Do on a Poipu Beach Day

There’s nothing quite like trading in the hustle and bustle of life for a relaxing getaway. If you’re ready to enjoy the slower pace of life, pack your bags and head to Kauai. This Hawaiian island is known for its picturesque scenery and phenomenal vacation homes, like the ones you can rent from Hawaii Life Vacations. If you’re looking for something to add to your itinerary that’ll have you soaking in the endless sunshine, spend a day at Poipu beach checking out all the fun things to do and see.

What to Do at Poipu Beach

Found on Kauai’s South Shore, Poipu Beach is a spot that’s perfect for visitors of all ages. Part of the beach is protected by a jetty, while the other is known for deeper waters that allow for various water activities. 


The right side of Poipu beach is an excellent spot for snorkeling. Services like Kauai Zodiac Tours offer guided excursions through the crystal waters that’ll have you looking for tropical fish and other sea creatures. Keep in mind these waters are prone to strong swells in the summer, so check surf conditions before heading out.


If you’re visiting during summer, expect to see countless surfers in the water. The consistent southerly swells mean Popu Beach is a go-to spot for surfers of all levels. If you’re new to this sport, book lessons with knowledgeable shops like Nukumoi Surf Co. or Poipu Beach Surf School.

Other Fun

There are countless other adventures to enjoy on your Poipu Beach day. Take the little ones swimming on the east side of the beach, which is watched by lifeguards. If you’re not quite ready for surfing, give bodyboarding a try. 

Reserve Your Escape to the Garden Isle

Kauai is known as the Garden Isle, and for good reason. This lush island is full of breathtaking scenery to explore. Soak in the sunshine as you check out the things to do at Poipu Beach Park or by exploring Kokee State Park
