Poʻipu Beach information
Although it's nicknamed Sheraton Beach or Kiahuna Beach, this long swath of sand is not private. It merely fronts these hotel and the condo complexes, both of which scored big-time with their location here, lying west of Poʻipu Beach Park.
The waters are often too rough for kids, although an offshore reef tames the waves enough for strong ocean swimmers and snorkelers. To get to the beach, drive to the end of Hoʻonani Rd.
Experienced surfers and bodyboarders can attempt the breaks near the Sheraton, but those waters are famous for sneaker sets (rogue waves that appear out of nowhere) and the rocky coast makes it difficult to get offshore and back.
