Fresh Fish near Po'ipu?

We are staying in Po'ipu and are wondering if there is a market to buy fresh fish near by. We have read about the market on the north side, but are wondering about options on the south side.

Koloa as martik said is great place for fresh fish. Another place that I have found really fresh fish and well priced fish is Sueoka Store also in Koloa town. You'll see Sueoka's as you drive through Koloa on your way to Poipu.

Thank you! We are so looking forward to eating grilled fresh fish on our lanai! We plan on spending more money on experiences than on dining so any tips are helpful!

If those two don't have what you want, stop at Fish Express in Lihue across from Walmart on the main highway. They usually have a good selection.

Aloha from Kaua'i!

I live here in the Po'ipu - Koloa area and there are 3 places that I like to buy my fish (2 of them already mentioned) --

Koloa Fish Market -Old Koloa town - more expensive, but large choices of fish and cut to order - also plate lunches, bentos, etc.

Sueoka Store - they get their fish fresh every morning at their back door from the fishermen - I tend to buy my fish here more frequently than any of the others - because they always seem to have just the right amount for me!

Kukui'ula Market - on Po'ipu Rd. across from the fire station - they also get their fish fresh from the fishermen - very fresh and good - but not as much selection as the other two. However, they have tons of home-made goodies such as bentos, make sushi, kulolo and other local goodies as well.

Any of these 3 would be great places to buy fish here in the Po'ipu area IMO!

We just got back from the fish express.....

Ono, Ahi, and maybe four steaks off what was left of local swoard fish.

That was the selection for the day.

I was a little disappointed in that I was hoping for Opah, or Opakapaka, but they get what the fishermen catch.

They also have a great take out menu, and we will be able to alternate between Marks Place for great plate lunches, and the Fish Express.

If we were in Poipu, we would go to the Koloa Fish Market, early. Just a bit too far for us to drive for fish, since Fish Express is closer. But for those in poipu, perfect.
