Have Fun Discovering the Best Things to Do in Poipu

The minute you arrive at your Kauai vacation home from Hawaii Life Vacations the stress of life just starts to melt away. Every side of this island is filled with dramatic beauty just waiting for you to discover it, including Poipu. Located on the south side of Kauai, it is known for its year-round idyllic weather and sunshine, which means you have plenty of time to spend outdoors enjoying the range of things to do in Poipu!

What to Do During Your Poipu Visit

Some of the best things to do and see in Poipu cost you little to nothing. This means you can enjoy countless adventures without breaking the bank! 

  • A must for any of our guests staying on this side of the island is spending time at Poipu Beach. This beach constantly ranks as one of the best in the country and is a go-to spot for snorkeling, swimming, surfing, and more. 

  • To see a natural wonder, visit Spouting Horn, which shoots water 50 feet in the air through natural lava tubes. This spot is made even more beautiful at sunset.

  • Hike the Maha’ulepu Heritage Trail. Make your way along this roughly four-mile coastal trail from Shipwreck Beach to Punahoa Point. 

  • Another great heritage trail is the Koloa Heritage Trail. Give yourself plenty of time to explore this 10-mile trail that includes 14 monuments at historically, environmentally or culturally significant sites. 

  • See what you can discover at the Kauai Culinary Market, which takes place every Wednesday from 3:30 to 6 p.m. at The Shops at Kukuiula. Purchase fresh fruits and vegetables to enjoy back at your vacation rental and watch local chefs show off their skills.

Adventure is all around you, so you won’t have any trouble finding activities and attractions to fill your days. Check out our Poipu area information page for more recommendations on things to do and see.
