Kauai’s alluring southern coastline features a series of unusual reef formations and white sand beaches, each with its own shoreline environment. Swimming, boogie boarding, surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving are all found within a one mile stretch of coastline. Poipu Beach Park is considered among the safest in Hawaii, with a lifeguard on duty seven days a week. However, you should always check ocean conditions before entering and never be in the ocean alone. For the most up-to-date ocean conditions and safety tips, visit www.kauaiexplorer.com. Some Kauai beaches do not have trash receptacles, so please help us keep Kauai clean – bring your trash with you when you leave. Mahalo.
