Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Start off your visit on the 31st (Wed): admire the majestic nature at Waimea Canyon State Park, take in the dramatic natural features at Spouting Horn, and then hike along Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail. Keep things going the next day: kick back and relax at Kalapaki Beach, sample the fine beverages at Kōloa Rum™ Company Store, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Poipu Beach Park.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Poipu itinerary maker.
