  • Salt in the Air, Sand in Your Hair

    Kauai's natural beauty will beckon you to explore its rainforests, waterfalls, emerald foliage and dramatic cliffs. Even with so much to explore away from the shore, there's no denying the appeal of its striking beaches. Here are our favorites.

    Poipu Beach. This beautiful, golden sand beach is the most popular beach on the island for good reason. It's great for families with young children and offers some of the best snorkeling on the island. You'll find Poipu about a five-minute drive from the hotel.

    Brennecke's Beach. Located on the eastern end of Poipu Beach Park, Brennecke's will appeal to the teenagers in your group as it's great for both boogie boarding and surfing.

    Baby Beach. Baby Beach lies in a protected cove, with calm and shallow waters that are ideal for young children. It's located to the west of Poipu Beach.

    Hanalei. "Puff the magic dragon lived in Hanalei…" Three miles long with large waves and a white sand beach, the bay at Hanalei is a big draw for experienced surfers. Shallow sandbars are great for relaxing.
