Hidden Beauty at Kipu
Kipu Ranch is a 3,000 acre property extending from the Huleia River to the top of Mt. Haupu. It is home to many movie sites and wildlife! The ranch has seen many changes through the years from a sugar plantation to the working cattle ranch it is today. Kipu Ranch is also a private ranch and not accessible to the general public. Ride through the ranch on your very own ATV or kick back, relax and take a ride on one of our passenger vehicles! Let this vendor share some of Kauai's hidden beauty with you and your family.
