Poipu

— 5 nights
Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Family-friendly places like Makawehi Bluff and Poipu Beach Park will thrill your kids. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Baby Beach and Lawa'i Beach. When in Poipu, make a side trip to see Polihale State Park in Waimea, approximately Waimea away. There's still lots to do: stroll through Kalapaki Beach, hike along Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail, visit a coastal fixture at Ninini Point Lighthouse Cache Site, and enjoy the sand and surf at Mahaulepu Beach.

For maps, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Poipu road trip planning site.

The Garden Isle
The northernmost of Hawaii's major islands, Kauai earned the nickname "Garden Island" because of its abundance of lush greenery and tropical plants, watered frequently with plentiful rainfall. Kauai's landscape continues to suffer from powerful erosion, resulting in natural attractions that include plunging canyons, tall mountain peaks, and the longest sandy coastline of all the Hawaiian islands. Offering a mild tropical climate and pristine wilderness areas largely unspoiled by mass tourism, Kauai is a great vacation destination for visitors eager to escape Hawaii's more crowded tourist resorts. For a genuine Kauai experience, join the locals for one of their famous traditional meat and vegetable feasts, prepared in underground pits lined with hot rocks.
