Spend the day at one of Princeville’s beautiful beaches. Check out Pu’u Poa Beach for swimming, Anini Beach for snorkeling, or Hanalei Beach for surfing. Just forty minutes from Princeville is the family-friendly Lydgate Beach Park which features an enclosed swimming area.
If it’s available, celebrate your arrival to the island with a traditional luau. Family-owned and operated Smith Family Garden Luau offers an intimate celebration. Or visit Luau Kalamaku on the Historic Kilohana Plantation for award-winning entertainment and an authentic luau experience.
Start your day with dessert! The perfect pairing for local coffee is a handcrafted taro donut from Holey Grail Donuts. Each donut is lovingly fried in organic coconut oil and coated in locally sourced ingredients like wildflower honey and Hawaiian sea salt. For an island wake up call, try their nitrogen-flash-chilled coffees and teas.
The Nā Pali coast is one of the most stunning things you’ll ever see, with towering sea cliffs, cascading waterfalls, and lush greenery. Tour some of Kauai’s most famous natural wonders on a Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour or a zodiac boat excursion with Nā Pali Craze.
End your day with souvenir shopping in Hanalei Town and happy hour with one of Aunty Louise’s world famous Tahiti Nui Mai Tais.
