Kauai is known as teh Garden isle due to its density of tropical vegetation, which you may have seen in Jurassic Park or South Pacific movies. Poipu is the best beach on the island. It has varying levels of surf depending which section you are in.

Poipu Beach

If you want more from your beach experience than idyllic surrounds of palm trees blowing in cool breezes off azure seas etc. how about kayaking, golf, diving, snorkeling, mountain biking fishing or horseback riding. Apparently this beach has it all when it comes to activities, you can even enjoy it from the air by taking a trip skyside in a helicopter. There’s nothing wrong with just sitting on the sand and chilling out though, there are lots of photos of this beach were people are doing just that. There are also lots of photos of people getting married.

If you want to check the real credentials, this beach is actually a series of smaller beaches which are like golden crescents separated by tufts of jungle and resort. Nature has even conveniently blessed this beach with a pre-formed wading pool for the little ones.
