Poipu

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): stroll the grounds of Kauai Veteran's Cemetery. Keep things going the next day: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Raphael Church, contemplate the long history of Kilohana, then take in the dramatic natural features at Spouting Horn, and finally kick back and relax at Poipu Beach Park.

To see maps, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Poipu trip planning site.

Chicago to Poipu is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time (CST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -4 hour difference. Expect a bit warmer evenings in Poipu when traveling from Chicago in June, with lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) early enough to drive to Hanalei.
