ideal swimming and the giant wooden castle playground for the kids. It's a good place to take the family as there are amenities and restaurants close by the water, and all the soft sand and dazzling sunlight you could ask for, plus snorkeling and a prime mix of gentle shallow water and surf.
Spectacular Natural Attractions
Spouting Horn Park is one of the most photographed sites on the island. The natural blowhole is formed from a lava tube and can shoot water up to fifty feet in the air. It's a place of local legend and accessible along the Koloa Heritage Trail, a 10-mile long, self-guided trail connecting several landmarks including Spouting Horn, the 19th-century whaling port at Hanakaape Bay, and Hawaii's Prince Kuhio's birthplace. For more high-energy thrills during your Poipu timeshare holiday, reach for the skies on a zip line tour or relax with a stroll through Old Koloa Town for retail therapy and restaurants. If you are looking for natural beauty on the island, then Poipu's Botanical gardens and the Poipu Bay Golf Course are also worthy of your time.
When is Peak Season?
Tourism season peaks from December through March as warm-weather seekers come to its sunny shores for winter and spring break trips on the beach. The beaches may be more crowded at this time of year, but you'll also find perfect weather for going outside and enjoy the tropical scenery. If you want to avoid the crowds, visiting slightly earlier, from September through November, puts you in the slow season and you may find you have more beaches and attractions to yourself than during the peak. Late spring and summer are the shoulder seasons for a Poipu timeshare vacation, as you'll find deals and plenty to do during these months, with the added benefit of the least amounts of rainfall each year.
Like many places in Hawaii, Poipu's nightlife begins at sunset with a variety of options from the vistas overlooking Spouting Horn to beachfront restaurants and cafes where you can watch the sunset while listening to Hawaiian music, dancing, and hanging out. Several beach restaurants and bars light up the tiki torches at night and offer places to socialize late into the evening.
