A Day in: Poipu, Kauai

Because i’m in Kauai so often, I decided i’ll do “A Day In” post for Poipu and Hanalei, rather than just A Day in: Kauai. Too many things! Mayyyybe i’ll do the east and west sides as well, but i’m not in those areas as much so we’ll see!

Where to stay: The Hyatt (obvious choice-best lagoon/pool ever), Koa Kea Hotel & Resort (boutique-y), or an Airbnb!

Wake up and…

Eat breakfast at: 

Anake’s Juice Bar (acai bowls, juices, chia seed parfaits, etc.)


Kauai Juice Co. for fresh juices/kombuchas-galore


Anuenue Cafe (omelets, pancakes, burritos…)


Walk or run up to Spouting horn, hike Ho’opi’i falls trail, SUP at Poipu Beach, rent a bike!

Beach at…

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Shipwrecks Beach (locals locals locals), Poipu Beach (people-watching is unreal here), Sheraton, Kukui’ula Harbor Beach (for when you don’t want to be around many people)


Avocado Ahiiiiii. Like crack

We normally pack our own beach snacks to eat such as: turkey, carrots, hummus, fruit, and chips. BUT if you’re dying to eat out somewhere then I would grab some avocado ahi from Koloa Fish Market (or their lau lau plate omgggg), Living Foods Market, or drive to Kalaheo Cafe.

After the beach…

Stroll through the Shops at Kukuiula. Wednesday is the Culinary Market, Second Saturday of every month is the Art Walk, and live music on Friday’s.

Check out Warehouse 3540 and the Fresh Shave for curated items and the best shave ice EVER.

Watch the sunset at Baby Beach, you might even see a monk seal or sea turtle taking a nap!

Dinner time…

 To be honest, we don’t normally go out to eat often, simply because we buy fresh fish from the market and make delicious (and less expensive) meals on our grill at home! BUT if we were to go out: Merriman’s, Kalaheo Cafe, Brick Oven Pizza, Eating House 1849, Stevenson’s in the Hyatt (cool bar).

P.S. Lappert’s Ice Cream is a MUST. I always save it for the end of the trip! ❤
