Poipu

Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. For shopping fun, head to Coconut Marketplace or Poipu Shopping Village. Visit Poipu Beach Park and Shipwreck Beach for some beach relaxation. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Poipu: Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha), Wailua Falls (in Lihue) and Hanalei Beach (in Hanalei). There's still lots to do: learn more about the world around you at Kauai Museum, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, explore the activities along Menehune Fishpond, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

For ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Poipu trip itinerary site.
