Princeville is a development of some 500 acres on the north shore of Kauai, between the towns of Hanalei and Kilauea. What started as a coffee plantation in the mid-1800s is now the largest planned development on Kauai. Princeville is home to some of the finest resorts, golf courses and restaurants on the islands. Kauai’s north shore is also where you’ll find some of the most spectacular scenery in Hawaii. There are three main beaches in Princeville, which are Kenomene Beach, Kaweonui Beach and Puu Poa Beach. A wide reef along these beaches creates warm pockets for swimming and snorkeling in calm weather. Other area activities include tennis, golf, windsurfing, kayaking, fishing, sailing, helicopter tours and shopping. You can arrange for a private guided jungle hike, waterfall excursion or kayaking adventure. Just outside of Princeville along Highway 56 is a beautiful scenic overlook that is marked by a Hawaiian warrior state marker. From here you can look out over the lush Hanalei Valley. A little further south of Princeville you will find the Guava Farm, National Wildlife Refuge and Bird Sanctuary where you can learn about the native plants and animals on this incredible island. You can also tour the Kilauea Lighthouse that stands on the northern most point in all of Hawaii. Princeville is ideally located on the scenic north coast, making it a good home base while touring all the area attractions.
It is one of the world's most beautiful spots.
The Island can be toured in a day, but it's spectacular beauty and endless variety of activities will make you want to stay forever!
