Our Lihue vacation rentals provide the perfect place for a luxurious and relaxing Hawaii vacation. Located on Kauai's scenic eastern shore, Lihue is centrally located so you can explore the whole island from the lush and verdant north shore and rugged Na Pali Coast to the sunny south side and the west side's impressive Waimea Canyon.
Things To Do There are several nice beaches in this area including Kalapaki Beach next to Nawiliwili Harbor. Relatively well-protected from the open ocean, Kalapaki is a popular family beach and also offers watersports equipment rentals right on shore. You can take a stand up paddleboarding or surfing lesson, or even ride in an outrigger canoe.
For more great beaches head over to the Poipu resort area where a variety of activities are available from scuba diving and snorkeling to surfing, bodyboarding and hiking. Enjoy a luxurious spa treatment and then relax on the beach!
Golfers will enjoy the expert course designing of Jack Nicklaus at the Mokihana Golf Course and Kiele Course. For interesting exhibits about Kauai's history and culture check out the Kauai Museum in downtown Lihue.
Eat and Shop Lihue offers a wide range of shopping and dining opportunities from fast food to local-style eateries to formal dining. Numerous venues offer live music to accompany your dinner.
For fine dining head over to 22 North at Kilohana Estate where you can enjoy your meal at a historic Tudor mansion and then take a train tour of the plantation, which is still a working farm. This is also the site of the Koloa Rum Tasting Room. For food straight from the local farms check out the Lihue Farmers Markets on Mondays at Kukui Grove Shopping Center (behind Kmart) and Fridays at Vidinha Stadium.
Getting Around A rental car is recommended when staying in Lihue vacation rentals so you can explore the nearby beaches and attractions with easy access to "sunny Poipu" on the south shore, Waimea Canyon on the west side, and the lush and verdant north shore
