South shore highlights close to our Poipu vacation rentals include:

  • Poipu Beach and Park: Nestled in the Poipu resort area, this beach is conveniently located near some of Kauai’s best shopping, dining and golf. Poipu Beach is one of the most popular and safest beaches on the island. Frolic in the water with turtles and dolphins.
  • Old Koloa Town: Historic and picturesque, the Koloa district spans from Old Koloa Town to Kauai’s beautiful South Shore in Poipu. Koloa opened its first sugar mill in 1835 and set the precedent for commercial sugar production across the islands. The sugar era opened the door to a wave of immigrants that make up Hawaii’s multicultural population today. Old Koloa Town has retained much of its charm with shops now occupying the plantation buildings along Koloa Road. Stroll by old-fashioned storefronts and discover special local gifts. 
  • Koloa Heritage Trail: The trail, is a 14-stop, self-guided 10-mile tour of the Koloa and Poipu area’s most important cultural, historical and geological sites, with descriptive plaques that explain each spot’s significance.
  • Allerton Garden: This National Tropical Botanical Garden is a paradise, transformed through time by the hands of a Hawaiian Queen, by a sugar plantation magnate, and most significantly by an artist and an architect, Robert Allerton and John Gregg Allerton, who in 1938 began designing and developing the mistifying garden "rooms" and water features. You might also recognize the garden's enormous Moreton Fig Trees from their role in "Jurassic Park," as well as other areas of the garden that have served as a backdrop for numerous blockbuster films.
