With its beautiful curve of sand, Kiahuna Beach remains one of the most popular Kauai beaches on the South Shore. Also known as Sheraton beach, you can walk here in 7 minutes from Poipu Kapili. Any stay is not complete without a visit to this classic oceanfront star.
Kiahuna Beach is also a beautiful place to settle in with your favorite beverage and watch the Kauai sunset. Mostly protected, swimming is safe year round and the summer months provide excellent waves for beginner surfers. Those with experience can venture out farther to catch some bigger waves.
Kauai snorkeling enthusiasts come here often when the surf is flat. There are plenty of fish to see such as tangs, boxfish, needlefish, colorful wrassses and large cornetfish. Other Kauai activities to enjoy include swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, paddling or just a day in the sun. Remember to bring sunscreen!
Kauai Beach Tips for Kiahuna Beach.
Best place to enter the ocean here is at the eastern end near the Sheraton Kauai Resort.
Perfect for: Snorkeling, swimming, Kauai sunsets, picnics and relaxing on the beach.
Parking Advisory: While only a two minute drive from Poipu Kapili, we recommend that you walk as parking is limited. A small lot is just past the Sheraton. From here you are only twenty yards of the beach where the best snorkeling and swimming can be found.
Facilities: Restrooms are located across the grass from the parking lot and to the east. A public shower can be found toward the beach.
Caution: Although there is a lifeguard on duty at nearby Poipu Beach, this cove is not monitored so be careful. Larger surf in summer can break and strong currents can carry swimmers and surfers onto the sharp coral and slippery rocks.
Walking and Driving Directions from Poipu Kapili: From the front of the resort, turn left and follow the ocean to the end of Hoonani Road.
