As the name implies, Baby Beach, located in the south shore’s sunny Poipu, is ideal for babies and toddlers. When the shore breaks and waves get too overwhelming for your little ones, head to Baby Beach. The large rocks and reef provide a barrier against the ocean swell, resulting in very shallow, calm waters perfect for splashing, wading, and swimming for small children. This is a great place to practice swimming without having to worry about the waves. This beach is often less crowded than nearby Poipu Beach Park. Bring along your sand toys and play side-by-side with your children, creating lifelong memories.
Baby Beach has no lifeguard or restroom. However, you will find restrooms and showers just down the road in front of Lawai Beach. Baby Beach also has very little shade, so bring your beach umbrella and sunscreen!
After splashing in the shallow waters at Baby Beach in Kauai, head to nearby Kukui’ula Village Shopping Center to grab a bite to eat and browse the boutiques and galleries. Stop in Kiawe Roots for a local plate cooked from their wood-fired grill, or at Bubba’s Burgers for burger made with Kauai’s grass-fed beef. Take your keiki (children) to cool off with ice cream at Lappert’s or shave ice from Uncle’s Shave Ice. To pick up swim gear for your children or yourself, stop in Poipu Surf or Quiksilver. SoHa Living has beach-inspired décor to bring a little piece of island-life back to your home. On Wednesdays Kukui’ula also offers a farmers’ market.
