Kiahuna Beach is a popular section of Poipu Beach between Poipu Beach Park and Lawai Beach on Kauai’s south Shore.

Kiahuna Beach is suitable for beginner surf lessons, snorkeling, and boogie boarding.

Thanks to the outlying reef, the waters stay relatively calm. On the outside of the reef, experienced surfers ride the waves. Stay close to shore if you are a beginner surfer or body-boarder. With limited shade, it is advisable to bring an umbrella along. Parking is limited but available at Poipu Beach Park.
