Locally referred to as PKs, this small section of Prince Kuhio Beach is located just off of Lawai Road, west of Prince Kuhio Park. It is right next to Boss Frogs. It is literally right next to the road so its not much of a beach for sunbathing, as sometimes there's no sand.

However, Prince Kuhio Beach is a great spot for snorkeling when the water is calm. Youll find lots of coral, reef fish, sea turtles, or honu, and if you're lucky, a monk seal may even visit you. Monk seals are known to frequent Kauais south shore beaches to bathe in the sun. When the waves are high, this spot becomes a favorite for the local surfers.

The best place to hang out is the Beach House lawn closer to Lawai beach. Lawa'i Beach is right next to Prince Kuhio Beach and they are often mistaken as the same. It is also a great spot for snorkeling. The grassy bank by the restaurant makes a fine spot for watching surfers and sunsets so this place can get crowded.

"Although after snorkeling here I’d rather hang out at one of the more secluded beaches east of Poi"
Reviewed April 8, 2014
If you are looking for a quick and easy snorkel trip this little beach is really good. And Boss Frog’s is right there. The beach isn’t much it’s just a small patch of sand next to the road but the folks at Boss Frog’s said it was one of the most popular spots in Poipu for snorkeling. And they were right! We saw so many fish and turtles here! You would never think of stopping here for other than refreshments and the view but the water was so clear we were glad we found this little place. Although after snorkeling here I’d rather hang out at one of the more secluded beaches east of Poipu.
