Located on Kauai’s south shore, the Poipu area is famous for its sunny disposition, a delightful garden retreat, beautiful resorts and Spouting Horn. A plethora of activities are available including kayaking, scuba diving, hiking, surfing, mountain biking, deep-sea fishing, horseback riding and ATV tours. Golf enthusiasts can play two 18-hole championship courses designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. plus ocean cruises and helicopter tours.

Snorkeling in Poipu reveals a variety of colorful fish including the state fish, the humuhumunukunukuapuaa. Relax at Poipu Beach Park (named #1 by Dr. Beach in 2001) and spend the day with the family, then catch a stunning sunset.

On a historiacal note, Poipu was also the birth place of Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole. He was the last royal heir to the Hawaiian throne and a delegate to congress. His birthday, March 26, is a holiday in Hawaii known as Prince Kuhio Day.
