Brennecke Beach

Brennecke Beach is most famous for the sea turtles that hang out there all year long. Boogey boarding becomes a whole new sport when you have a sea turtle for company. One of the most family friendly beaches on the island, Brennecke is one of our guests favorites. It typically has smaller waves toward the shore and larger waves a little farther out – perfect for beginners and more exprienced boogey boarders and surfers. Nearby is a large park with an extensive field and facilities for the whole family to enjoy. After a few hours on the beach you can run over to Brennecke’s restaurant and have a relaxing picnic in the park.

Poipu Beach

The Travel Channel consistently names Poipu Beach as “one of the world’s best beaches.” And for good reason. The white sand is fine and soft under your feet; the ocean waters an amazing turquoise. And everywhere, people are friendly. Whether snorkeling in the natural wading pool enclosed by lava rock, boogie boarding through rougher waters, or eating local foods under shaded pavilions, at the Beaches in Poipu you’ll be surrounded by people ready to lend a hand or tell an old Hawaiian tale.

Shipwreck Beach

There is no better way to enjoy a Kauaian evening than to stroll along the trail at Shipwreck Beach. Though the hike is ideal for couples on a romantic getaway or families with young kids, anyone at any age can enjoy this beautiful stroll. The hike begins at Shipwreck Beach, walking distance from the Villas at Poipu Kai. Head east on the beach and follow the trail that eventually takes hikers to Mahalapu Beach. The trail is mostly flat and sandy. It jaunts along the coastline taking hikers up to the limestone cliffs that served as the original shoreline. Continual erosion creates stark drop offs and incredible look-outs. Ultimately, there is no better place on the island to watch the sunset alone, with your partner, or with friends and family. Within such a short distance from the Villas, there is no reason to not experience this hike, taking in the natural beauty that makes Kauai so alluring.
