Lihue

Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Get out of town with these interesting Lihue side-trips: Hanalei Beach (in Hanalei), Waimea (Waimea Canyon State Park & Polihale State Park) and Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha). There's still lots to do: kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, kick back and relax at Poipu Beach Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Shipwreck Beach, and take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour.

For where to stay, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Lihue trip planning site.

The Garden Isle
The northernmost of Hawaii's major islands, Kauai earned the nickname "Garden Island" because of its abundance of lush greenery and tropical plants, watered frequently with plentiful rainfall. Kauai's landscape continues to suffer from powerful erosion, resulting in natural attractions that include plunging canyons, tall mountain peaks, and the longest sandy coastline of all the Hawaiian islands. Offering a mild tropical climate and pristine wilderness areas largely unspoiled by mass tourism, Kauai is a great vacation destination for visitors eager to escape Hawaii's more crowded tourist resorts. For a genuine Kauai experience, join the locals for one of their famous traditional meat and vegetable feasts, prepared in underground pits lined with hot rocks.
