Although there are hundreds of islands comprising the Hawaiian archipelago, some are more familiar than others! Kauai, also known as the “Garden Island”, may not be the largest island, but it has some of the most beautiful scenery and small population, making it a serene and natural wonder. These are some of the reasons why movies such as Jurassic Park and King Kong have used the island as a location for filming.

Kauai is home to lush greenery, scenic views, and amazing beaches. Such beaches include Poipu, which is one of the best in the world with its white sand and clear blue water, making it a good tourist destination. Sounds fun, but if you’re worried about where to stay, here’s a list of the best Vrbo accommodations in Poipu, Hawaii, to help you get started!
