. Brennecke's Beach is a small sandy cove right off the road and is popular for
. The waves are pretty consistent here and break both close and further from the shore which suits both beginning and advanced body boarders. Surfing is not allowed near the shore so body boarders don't have to compete for waves with surfers.
There is not much room for other beach activities, but mom and dad, friends or your spouse can catch some rays as they watch from the shore. There is no lifeguard, so it's nice to have someone keeping an eye on you. This beach is also a short walk from Poipu Beach
, which is packed on nearly all days of the week. Split your time between the calm waters of Poipu and the waves at Brennecke's without moving the car.
You can drive by and get a good feel for the waves without leaving your car. If the waves are good, don't waste any time, get your fins, sunblock and board and hit the water. The waves can be epic, however, be careful to watch for fellow wave riders, since it can it crowded. Also steer clear of the rocks to the right of the beach, as the sandy shore is a much more forgiving landing area after a long amazing body board ride.
It's very common to see turtles. In fact sometimes it's a challenge to make sure you don't bump into them, or catch their wave (kidding about their wave). Sea turtles hang out among the body boarders, and sometimes will surprise you when they surface.
Make sure to grab hold of your gear. If you loose a fin or a wedding ring, there is no chance you'll get them back.
Nearby are a few restaurants which make for a great lunch spot to stop, eat and watch some waves!
