Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Baby Beach and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Get outdoors at Makawehi Bluff and Shipwreck Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Poipu side-trips: Polihale State Park (in Waimea) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Kekaha). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Salt Pond Beach Park, view the masterpieces at Seductions of Kauai Gallery, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Koloa Rum Company, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Kauai Veteran's Cemetery.

For where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Poipu vacation planner .

New York City to Poipu is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and taxi.
