The South Shore of Kauai is home to the historic Old Koloa Town, the famous Poipu Bay Golf Course and the spectacular Spouting Horn, among other fun attractions. Discover why we recommend visiting Kauai's South Shore during your vacation!
For golfers visiting the southern shore of Kauai, the gorgeous Poipu Bay Golf Course offers an incredible day on the links. This challenging course meanders across 210 acres of gently rolling hills, perfectly situated between the pounding ocean surf and breathtaking mountain views.
As the Pacific surf breaks on the southern shore of Kauai at Poipu, a natural lava tube channels the water inland. The resulting sea spray is released high into the air as a spout that is especially impressive during large swells.
One of the smaller beaches on our list, Poipu Beach is a great choice for families with small children and first-time snorkelers. Encompassing two bays, this popular beach has lots of amenities including lifeguards, rest rooms, picnic areas and showers.
