Poipu

Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Kick off your visit on the 20th (Thu): explore the different monuments and memorials at Kauai Veteran's Cemetery and then identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Raphael Church, then contemplate the long history of Kilohana, then take in the dramatic natural features at Spouting Horn, and finally tour the pleasant surroundings at Poipu Beach Park.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Poipu trip maker site .

Chicago to Poipu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll gain 4 hours traveling from Chicago to Poipu due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Chicago in June, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be somewhat warmer in Poipu, with lows of 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) early enough to go by car to Hanalei.
