Heading to Kauai for the first time and looking at staying around Poipu Beach. However, I've heard that the beach suffered a fair amount of erosion in early 2013, and that the loss of the tombolo had lead to a strong rip current at the beach.
That being said, the most recent pieces of information I've found talk about a sand replenishment project that started in late December and is scheduled to finish in February 2014.
I'm curious what the actual current state of the beach is? Is the beach still safe to swim at? And as we'll be going there in August, is there any plan to have sand replenishment and erosion protection projects going on at this time?
