Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Poipu Beach Park and Makawehi Bluff. Visiting Waimea Canyon State Park and Spouting Horn will get you outdoors. Explore Poipu's surroundings by going to Kapaa (Sleeping Giant Trail & Kayaking & Canoeing), Wailua Falls (in Lihue) and Aunty Liliko'i (in Waimea). There's much more to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, relax in the rural setting at Kauai Coffee Company, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and enjoy the sand and surf at Shipwreck Beach.

Discover how to plan a Poipu trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
