  • What a gorgeous, off the beaten path place to visit! Pretty spot, you would not even know it was there, but it is a definite must do if you are in Poipu!  more »
  • First if you go, follow the directions on the website, do follow GPS. This is a very interesting natural attraction and the fellow giving the little tour is very knowledgeable. You will only spend 20 ...  more »

  • Very neat place to visit. Have gone often further down the road to the beach but this time we stopped to see the cave and tortoises. 🐢- While we were there we saw 5 turtles. To get to them you park by the caves and walk over the fence (yes, there’s some steps to get over the fence without letting the turtles escape! Lol) The area is relaxing and sunny. When we were there most of the 🐢 were hiding under trees for shade. 🦇- The cave is more of a large collapsed cave with a smaller one in the back. They offer tours every day from 10-4. As stated it is a valuable archaeological site. To enter the cave you have to crawl hands & knees through a small entrance. 🏖- There is access to the beach from the parking lot. If you’re looking for a peaceful place to walk or hang out this would be it! This place is well maintained and has picnic tables etc. Very nice place that not as many people get to visit.
  • Nice hike on a decent trail. A very nice informative gentleman gave us a tour of the small cave and explained its history. I have been to Kauai twice before and never knew or heard about this hike. Family friendly A++
