Brennecke's Beach

Beach in Poʻipu

With a sandbar bottom and a notch of sand and sea wedged between two lava rock outcrops, this little beach attracts a cadre of bodyboarders, bobbing in the water, waiting for the next set at any time of day or year. No surfboards are allowed near shore, so bodyboarders rule. Tourists sit on the roadside stone wall, gawking at the action.

The beach flanks the eastern edge of Poʻipu Beach Park. Check with lifeguards there before venturing out.
