Kauai’s most impressive beaches are located on the north shore, a compelling reason to vacation in that area. On our first few trips to Kauai, many years ago, we stayed in Princeville, lured by the beautiful scenery. On our first day trip visit to Poipu, we were a little puzzled by Poipu Beach Park. It’s a nice beach to be sure, but not on the same scale as some of the North Shore’s offerings. However, what we didn’t discover as casual visitors to the area were Poipu’s other beaches. And it wasn’t until we actually stayed in Poipu that we discovered Mahaulepu, one of Poipu’s hidden gems.
Of course we know better now, having stayed in Poipu many times. For those who aren’t sure whether Poipu has enough beaches to satisfy, take a look at the following video which shows them all.
