A gateway to the Garden Island

Dominating Kauai's South Shore, PoipuÊis one of Hawaii's premier resort destinations. It lures vacationers with golden crescentsÊof sand fringed by swaying palms and turquoise water. With Poipu vacation rentals you can unlock access to the resort's most coveted properties, complete with swimming pools, sun decks and frangipani-strewn gardens. As well as enjoying a bustling beach scene, PoipuÊis a gateway for seeing the rest of Kauai. It's known as the Garden Island, and with its emerald green mountains, lush valleys and cascading waterfalls it's easy to see why.

Swim, snorkel and soak up the sun

Poipu is a sun worshipper's dream come true, with a pair of gorgeous beaches to choose from. A narrow sand spit juts out from the mainland towards an island, creating a pair of adjacent beaches. The water is calm and clear, which makes it ideal for swimming, snorkeling or paddleboarding. Forgot your SUP? No problem. Or as the Hawaiians say, a'ole pilikia. Poipu Beach Park is dotted with places where you can rent everything from snorkel sets to paddleboards. You'll also find picnic tables, restrooms and a lifeguard stand.

Ziplining over the Poipu canopy

Feeling restless after a lazy day on the beach? With several exhilarating routes, Koloa Zipline is one of Kauai's most popular adventure attractions. You'll soar high above the jungle canopy and enjoy hours of thrills. Set on a lush plateau, the award-winning Poipu Bay Golf Course is one of Hawaii's most spectacular places to tee off. Enjoy a leisurely round or take advantage of clinicsÊandÊprivate lessons offered by local pros. After a day on the green, there's nothing more relaxing than sunset drinks on the balcony of your Poipu vacation rentals property.

Sunny escapes in Poipu

Planning a family getaway? From breezy plantation-style cottages to luxury condos, Poipu vacation rentals are the perfect place to create sun-spangled family memories. While the summer months tend to be drier and busier, winter is a beautiful time to visit. During green season you'll enjoy quieter beaches and a laid-back atmosphere.

Rub shoulders with seals, sea turtles and more

As well as luring beachgoers, the Poipu spit is a favorite hangout spot for endangered Hawaiian monk seals. In the afternoons they're often spotted snoozing in the sunshine. Green sea turtles are also local residents, while scores of humpback whales cruise the warm waters of Kauai's South Shore from November to May. If you're teeing off at Poipu Bay Golf Course, keep an eye out for NeneÊgeese. They're endemic to Hawaii and love to potter around the lush green course.
