Due to COVID and car manufacturing shortages, rental car availability is extremely limited. If you are not able to find a rental car for your desired travel dates, please either search for new travel dates or select a transfer service instead.

Fully Vaccinated Travelers (12 and older): Hawaii will eliminate its pre-travel testing/quarantine requirement for domestic travelers age 12 and older who have been fully vaccinated (15 days after getting their FINAL shot) in the United States. Fully vaccinated travelers must upload their CDC-issued vaccination record card to the state's Safe Travels Program website https://travel.hawaii.gov/. In addition, fully vaccinated travelers must carry their physical CDC-issued vaccination record card with them and present it upon arrival in the State of Hawaii. Photocopies, scanned copies or other reproductions will not be accepted and entry will be denied. Airlines will be checking for the required Safe Travel QR code before departure. Please review the following website for additional information and FAQ: https://hawaiicovid19.com/travel/faqs/. All policies are subject to change and are outside the control of Costco Travel.

Non-Vaccinated Travelers: To avoid a mandatory 10-day quarantine upon arrival on Hawaii Island, Maui, Kauai and Oahu, travelers are required to take an FDA-authorized NAAT test from a CLIA-certified lab within 72 hours of arrival in Hawaii. (Children ages 4 and younger are exempt from the test requirement.) If test results are not available prior to departure to Hawaii, the traveler must remain in quarantine. The State of Hawaii will only accept test results from the Trusted Testing and Travel Partners listed here: https://hawaiicovid19.com/travel-partners/.

More About Poipu

Overview

Sunshine and golden beaches are just part of the Poipu allure. December through April, the waters off the Southern Shores welcome pods of humpback whales, and during the summer months the occasional monk-seal perches on the warm beaches of the surrounding area. One of the top photographed attractions in Poipu is the Sprouting Horn blowhole. Seawater flows into a natural lava tube and releases a massive spray of water reaching as high as 50-feet into the air. The sound generated from the blowhole is the basis of a Hawaiian legend about a giant moo (lizard) named Kaikapu.

To the north of Poipu is the picturesque Old Koloa Town, home of the first sugar mill in the Hawaiian Islands. The mill was established in 1835 and became the benchmark of commercial sugar production in the islands that ushered in a wave of immigrants which help make up today's multicultural population.

Discovering the historical, cultural and geological points of interest in Poipu can be accomplished along the Koloa Heritage Trail. Comprised of 14 stops with descriptive plaques, this 10-mile tour of the area allows visitors a chance to understand and appreciate the Poipu area.

Allerton Garden is another local treasure worth exploring. Part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden, this 80-acre estate had initially been Queen Emma of Hawaii's summer home. In 1938, the Allerton family purchased the grounds and began laying out a master-planned garden featuring numerous garden rooms and water features. Film buffs will appreciate the garden for creating the backdrop to numerous movies including Jurassic Park.
