    Beautiful beach area. Great surfing and Shipwreck rock is a lovely backdrop.
    Consider a family photo session on this beach area in the morning sunlight.
    Great hiking trails in the area also. Aloha,

    YOUR CLOSEST BEACH, ALSO KNOWN AS "LONG SAND", IS DRAMATIC, BEAUTIFUL AND OUR FRONT YARD... JUST STEP OUT YOUR DOOR, WALK PAST 4 HOUSES AND YOU ARE AT THE GREENBELT. TAKE THE PATH LEFT AND RIGHT AWAY YOU WILL SEE THE WATER AT LONG SAND. SHIPWRECK HEADLAND FRAMES THE LARGE BAY AND WE WALK IT AT LEAST ONCE A DAY. WHAT A LIFE!

    This is the closest beach to Poipu Sands residing in front of the Grand Hyatt. Lovely beach but surf can be dangerous at times. Use caution if you're not a good swimmer and use fins! Fun to watch the local bodyboarders and surfers.

    This is in the Poipu area next to the grand Hyatt. There is a cliff and locals do cliff dive off of it. The beach is pretty nice and not as busy as other beaches. Parking is very limited though and tight. Great beach to go to!
