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 Makawehi Bluff and Talk Story Bookstore.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Poipu: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Kekaha) and Canyon Trail (in Waimea). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Salt Pond Beach Park, contemplate the long history of Old Kaloa Sugar Mill, take in nature's colorful creations at Allerton Garden, and get a taste of the local shopping with Art House Hawaii.
