Even though we didn't have kids with us we enjoyed watching the little ones playing in the sand and water. Nice safe area for kids!

This beach was very close to our house, so we spend a few days there. It is a small and very calm beach with very few waves. Very good for small children with adult supervision. There were turtles that swam into the cove and explored our family enjoying their habitat. There are lots of urchins and quite shallow water as you further out, so it can be kinda sketchy if you are walking on the rocks without protection.

Easy access with gentle waves behind rock jetty. Snorkeling was done toward the far side. A sand peninsula juts out to give the beach a variety of locations for different uses.

This is a small section of the Poipu Beach that is largely sheltered from current. It offers a good place to learn about the ocean and a good place for new snorkelers to experiment with their equipment. There are life guards present during the day.

The two Photos and the Review by Attwins in particular appear to relate to Poipu Beach and not to Baby Beach. While there is a beach for babies and toddler’s at Poipu, it is NOT Baby Beach. Likewise, several other reviewers here describe the situation that sometimes exists at Poipu, [crowded, seals, snack stand, rough water, picnic tables and chickens.] That can be the situation at Poipu [which is a beautiful beach and great for snorkeling and Great for families] but almost certainly it is notthe situation at Baby Beach in Koloa/Poipu. .

Baby Beach is located off a small short residential street with mostly private homes and a few B&B/apartments. Other than from the private homes or across the reef, it can only be accessed from a narrow alley.
The access is pictured very nicely in the photo posted by Sussane E June 16th, 2013. It’s easy walking distance from Lawai Beach Resort, Lawai Beach or the Beach House restaurant. I described it briefly in my review of Lawai Beach …

“ “Baby Beach” is just a short walk to the east from Lawai Beach. Access is located between 1552 and 1542 Hoona Road . It IS a public beach! Very shallow, very calm, and very pleasant. The little kids can have a ball and be easily watched. You will probably have the entire beach to yourselves.”

Stick with the earlier review by Sussane E from June 16th, 2013 [below] and ignore reviews by others who reference crowds, rough water, snack stands, picnic tables, etc.

Keep in mind that this beach is ideal for mothers with babies and toddlers - not for older children, or teenagers.
