Last Day in Poipu

Staying here 5 days feels short. It has been an awesome location on a beautiful island. The sandy beach just outside our condo wasn't the best beach for the kids, but it was a great place to view surfers and wildlife. A monk seal came upon the beach to sunbathe and local staff cordoned him off to keep the tourists from getting too close.

Just about a half mile from our room, was Poipu Beach State Park. This beach was perfect for the girls, lots of secluded and protected shallow water to play in, a lifeguard on duty, restrooms, playground and covered picnic structures. And of course, across the street, one could find refreshments such as Hawaiian shaved ice. Every spare chance we had, Dad took the girls to play at this beach.

On our last day, we had a few hours to pass between check out time and airplane boarding time. We found a nice shopping center, had lunch and let the girls play one last time at the playground.

Next stop, the Big Island
