Sunseekers usually head south to the condo-studded shores of Poipu, where three- and four-story complexes line the coast and the surf is generally ideal for swimming. As the island's primary resort community, Poipu has the bulk of the island's accommodations, and more condos than hotels, with prices in the moderate to expensive range. Although it accommodates many visitors, its extensive, colorful landscaping and low-rise buildings save it from feeling dense and overcrowded, and it has a delightful coastal promenade perfect for sunset strolls. Surprisingly, the South Shore doesn't have as many shops and restaurants as one might expect for such a popular resort region, but the new Kukuiula shopping plaza is doing its best to fill the gaps. The area's beaches are among the best on the island for families, with sandy shores, shallow waters, and grassy lawns adjacent to the sand.

Aston Aloha Beach Hotel
Aston Aloha Beach Hotel
Nestled alongside Wailua Bay and the Wailua River, this low-key, low-rise hotel is a convenient and very inexpensive place to stay. It's within walking distance of Lydgate Beach Park, with its lifeguard and lawns, and also close to shops and low-cost restaurants. Rooms are in two wings and have beach, mountain, or ocean views and coffee-makers. The hotel also offers one-bedroom beach cottages with kitchenettes. It's not fancy, and some areas need better upkeep, but it's a reasonable choice for budget accommodations.
