Lihue — 7 nights

Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Secret Beach and Na Pali Coast. Get a sense of the local culture at Ninini Point Lighthouse Cache Site and Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lihue: Kilauea (Garden Island Chocolate & Kalihiwai Beach), Koke'e Mountains (in Waimea) and Hanalei (Hanalei Beach, Wai`oli Hui`ia Church, &more). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Grove Farm Sugar Plantation Museum, take in the dramatic scenery at Wailua Falls, kick back and relax at Lumahai Beach, and whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

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.
