One of the rewards of traveling is to experience different cultures firsthand. Hawaii has evolved as one of the world’s most unique cultures and Kauai is imbued with interesting cultural practices, dances, music, cuisine, natural history and archaeology.
The Hawaiian islands were initially settled by courageous Polynesians and later became a melting pot of various Western and Eastern immigrants that arrived to the islands during the plantation era. This unparalleled mix of differing cultures resulted in a something special. While visiting Poipu Beach be sure to carve out a little time to immerse yourself in the Hawaiian culture.
