Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Get a sense of the local culture at Kilohana and Old Koloa Town. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Makawehi Bluff and Salt Pond Beach Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Poipu: Waimea (Polihale State Park & Canyon Trail) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Kekaha). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Kalapaki Beach, stroll through Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail, sample the fine beverages at Koloa Rum Company, and take in the exciting artwork at Tabora Gallery.
