Thanks to its perpetually agreeable weather, Poipu has been nicknamed the “sunny side of paradise.” It is located on the south side of Kauaʻi and is surrounded by the lush rain forests that make the island such a popular destination.
Enjoy the sunshine and warm waters at Poipu Beach Park. Its white-sand shores are perfect for sunbathing and lifeguards enable parents to rest easy while children paddle in the Pacific. Swim in the tranquil water or head a little further out to surf the area’s world-class waves.
Poipu’s calm waters make it an ideal snorkeling and diving destination. Pull on your mask and fins and prepare to meet sea turtles, tropical fish and maybe even a humpback whale. Poipu is also renowned for having one of the last populations of the critically endangered Hawaiian monk seals, which can be glimpsed lounging on the rocky shoreline.
The Poipu area is also renowned for its tropical landscapes. Join an off-road adventure or zip-line tour to cruise through rain forests and past towering waterfalls. Spend an afternoon at Allerton and McBryde Gardens to discover the native plants of Hawaii.
Poipu features a wide range of resorts, hotels and cottages, most of which have oceanfront access. The Shopping Village is a great place to buy souvenirs and to admire works by local artisans. Poipu Road hosts farmer’s markets throughout the week. Come with an empty stomach and fill up on local produce and other treats.
Poipu Bay Golf Course offers an oceanfront location so stunning it might distract you from your game. If you’d prefer total relaxation, visit one of the town’s spas to enjoy a traditional Hawaian massage.
No visit to Poipu is complete without attending a traditional luau. Taste local cuisine and watch dancers and musicians perform routines that will simultaneously entertain and inform you about the island’s history.
Poipu is a 30-minute drive southwest of Lihue Airport. Public transportation is limited, so it’s best to rent a car or motorcycle to get there and to explore the region’s attractions.

The property was very clean and the staff were very helpful and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again!
The property and check in staff were excellent. Our service at the restaurant was lacking. Great food and drinks though!
We liked the walking proximity to the surrounding areas and the resort personnel.
Extremely clean and quiet resort. Limited amount of people so the pool, restaurant and resort was very spacious for everyone's enjoyment. The staff was exceptional in every aspect. Well worth the price and the oceanfront room was extraordinary. Thank you!
Lovely gardens and great location by the beach. Plenty of beach chairs and loungers.
The beach chairs were nice liked getting beach towels liked the grills and how clean they were loved our beach that there was sand and also reefs that we could snorkel right there overall great experience would book at same condos next time lo Wished there was a bathroom near the beach
Whaler’s Cove is a beautiful resort, with all of the condo’s having great views of the ocean. I loved to just sit and watch and listen to the roar of the waves. They also had a nice pool right next to the ocean. The rooms had screens so we could let the cool ocean breeze in a night. My only issue ...
