Beautiful island, great scenary.

Lihu'e is one of the prettiest of the Hawaiian islands. Beautiful waterfalls and canyon. Easy to get around by car. Definitely worth a visit.

This is not a fun sexy town where you hang. You get in, get off, get out and don't come back till you leave.

This is not Kaua'i. It is the most developed and commercialized area on tge island. Home to numerous shopping areas, major port and airport. It is filled with many of the stores and fast food restaurants you have left behind on the mainland. To see the real Kaua'i you must get outside of Lihue.

Being an ocean location and port, there is a lot of activity, tours and water sports as well. And hotels and resorts if every description. Hiking... More

This is a phenomenal place on Kauai. It's literally walking distance from the airport, and it's a great jumping off point for anything you want to do on the island it's very centrally located, and it has amazing beaches!

Lihue is the place everyone should visit, everywhere you go from there is as beautiful as you can find anywhere.

Stayed only 2 nights as a side trip after visit to Honolulu. Should stay here first when luggage is much lighter due to shopping. We hired a car from Australia and picked it up at the airport. We traveled 300miles around the island in one day. Went to the west first and visited the lookouts to view the Pacific Grand... More

Lihu'e is on our favorite Island to visit - Kauai. The city is centrally located so you can venture out to the north or south shores.
