Poipu

Poipu ©
Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. You'll get in some beach time at Shipwreck Beach and Kalapaki Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Makawehi Bluff and Photography Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Poipu: Kauai Path (in Kapaa), Polihale State Park (in Waimea) and Lydgate State Park (in Wailua). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Lawa'i Beach, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, admire the natural beauty at Allerton Garden, and stroll through Salt Pond Beach Park.

To find photos, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Poipu trip planner.

Birmingham to Poipu is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 4 hours. When traveling from Birmingham in July, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Poipu: temperatures range from 84°F by day to 74°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Mon) early enough to go by car to Hanalei.
