Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Relax by the water at Poipu Beach Park and Shipwreck Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Scuba & Snorkeling. When in Poipu, make a side trip to see Aunty Liliko'i in Waimea, approximately 44 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Kilohana, stop by Salty Wahine Gourmet Hawaiian Sea Salts, relax in the rural setting at Kauai Coffee Company, and take in the dramatic natural features at Spouting Horn.

Plan my trip to Poipu with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Porto, Portugal to Poipu is an approximately 29-hour flight. Traveling from Porto to Poipu, you'll gain 10 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Porto in March; daily highs in Poipu reach 30°C and lows reach 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sun) so you can travel to Wainiha.
