Directions & Parking: Coming from the north part of Koloa, head south on Maluhia Road. Turn right onto Koloa Road, and quickly turn left onto Poipu Road heading south. You’ll pass the fire station and come to a roundabout. Get on the roundabout and take the left turnoff, onto another Poipu Road. Pass the Sheraton Hotel and the Marriott Waiohai Beach Club, and look for the tall, thin tikis up ahead on the right. Just before you reach the tikis, take a right onto Hoowili Street. Drive along this road until you see the recycling center on your left. The parking lot is now on your right, so turn in. Once you’re out of the car, head across the road toward the water to get your toes in the sand at Poipu Beach!
