This is a really good swimming spot for kids and families. Lots of beach and green space. Very, very busy place. The surf is good for boogie boards especially.

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
