Tour the island of Kauai, from...

by searworks

Tour the island of Kauai, from the beach at the end of the road in Hanalei down to Poipu Beach on the South shore. When I'm not in Hawaii, I miss just sitting near the ocean and watching the waves. On Kauai, Makahuena is a nice spot in Poipu (well, any beach in Poipu is a great spot really), as well as the lighthouse in Lihue.

Kuhio Shores

by kiko456

My family and I will be visiting Kauai next year for the first time. We are thinking about staying at Kuhio Shores. It appears to be a very nice place to stay and right on the water. Any past experiences would be appreciated!

Aloha. Have not stayed at the Kuhio Shores, but I saw it's location while dining at The Beach House in Poipu. Poipu is located on the sunny side of Kaua'i, less rain, I find the Waimea Canyon, the spouting horn, barking dog beach, Old Kaloa Town, and Poipu beaches all great places within easy access. If you enjoy gourmet foods please dine at The Beach House in Poipu. website: Poipu also is less windy than other parts of the Island. see website: for ideas on what to do in Kaua'i. Aloha oe

I was in the Sheraton at Poipu a couple hundred yards east a few months ago...
1) I second the recommendation for the Beach House.
2) For good, cheap food, try Pizzetta in Koloa, just a mile or two inland from your hotel. It's as good as any pizza on the mainland, and at mainland prices.
3) But for the absolute best food, try Bamboo Bamboo in Hanalai.
4) When in the water, watch for Portuguese man of war jellyfish. You may hear surfers calling out "Pochos! Pochos!" The smallest are little more in an inch in diameter and nearly invisible, and will ruin your day if you touch them.
5) If you snorkle, go to Kaa just north of Hanalai. But it's not too bad in Poipu either. ( just avoid Shipwreck beach )
6) See Waimea Canyon.
7) Skip the Fern Grotto. It was trashed by a huricane in the 90's and has not regrown much.
8) When you rent a car in Lihue, rent from National. ( I'm rather tall and didn't fit comfortably in the compact that we rented, so I brought it back prepared to pay for an upgrade to mid-size. They upgraded us two levels to a full-size for free! )

Travel Tips for Poipu

The Sunny South Shore

by annk

Poipu Beach is located on the south shore of the island of Kauai. The area is referred to as the 'Sunny South Shore.' Due to northeastly trade winds, the south and southwest coast is somewhat protected and receives less rain than the rest of the island. When it does rain however, it is usually at night or early morning with possibly a few brief 5 minute showers during the day. Most days are nice and sunny.

On our last trip in Sept. 2004, there were showers every night but each morning the sun was shining.

Poipu Beach Park

by annk

This park is comprised of a series of golden crescent shaped beaches great for swimming, snorkeling and surfing. There are some very safe shallow areas ideal for even the youngest toddlers. Surfing is best past the reef areas.

There is a large lawn area with coconut palms bordering the beach plus covered picnic areas and a playground. There are restroom facilities.

A lot of chickens reside here as elsewhere on the island. Obviously they are used to being fed since they do not hesitate to approach visitors.

Brennecke's Restaurant is across the street.

On Hoone Road, plenty of parking
