Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Escape the urban bustle at Poipu Beach Park and Baby Beach.

There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Lawa'i Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Allerton Garden, tour the pleasant surroundings at Salt Pond Beach Park, and admire the sheer force of Opaekaa Falls.
