Poipu Beach Hotel Features
The quarter-mile, crescent-shaped, white sand Poipu Beach fronts Sheraton Kauai Resort. A favorite beach among Kauai residents, it's known for its sunny weather and crystal-clear ocean waters. In past years Poipu Beach has been named the #1 Beach by Dr. Beach in USA TODAY and the #1 Best Family Beach by the TRAVEL CHANNEL. The ocean conditions are mild most of the year except for an occasional storm or swell, making this a popular beach for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding and surfing.
The marine wildlife at Poipu is plentiful and varied, and not all of it is underwater. The beach's most frequent return visitors are endangered monk seals that haul out to the beach to rest. From December through April, whale watching is great from our beach and even better from our ocean front rooms as 40 ton humpback whales spout, breach and frolic, right in front of our resortl. Mothers give birth and spend the winter and spring months teaching their babies about fin and tail slapping communication techniques, thrilling our guests with their antics. Pods of Spinner Dolphins often trail in the wake of fishing/snorkeling boats and Green Sea Turtles - another endangered species, can be seen swimming just offshore.
Ocean Pool & Garden Pool
Sheraton Kauai Resort features two fresh-water swimming pools. The Ocean Pool is located just steps from the beach and our Garden Pool is set among the gardens and koi ponds in the Garden Wing of the resort.
Eight private poolside bungalows line the Ocean Pool and include flat-screen TVs, ceiling fans and seating for six. They are available for half-day & full-day rentals and beachside cabanas are also available for daily rental. LEARN MORE
