Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Old Koloa Town and Ninini Point Lighthouse Cache Site are good opportunities to explore the local culture.

There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Poipu Beach Park, stroll through Shipwreck Beach, and take in the dramatic natural features at Spouting Horn.
