Map of Kauai and Distances

  We are located  near 

Lumahai Beach !                                     


We are located near Lumahai Beach at the very top of Map. The airport is near Lihue, bottom right. The most beautiful area for beaches and scenery is the last ten miles from Princeville at top, and then left to end of the red road. This is where most of the calendar photos of Kauai are taken. 

 

A note on South Shore vs. North Shore.   All the calendar photos of Kauai that you have probably ever seen were taken on North Shore, the green lush side of every island in Hawaii.  I think this makes the South shore businesses jealous, so they put out negative comments about the North Shore being rainy or cloudy.  Read GREEN!   The south sides of all our islands are the leeward, dry sides.  Mesquite and prickly pear cactus, no kidding.  Sun is guaranteed and so are mega resorts and artificial environments.  On Oahu it is Waikiki, on Maui it is Kihei, on Big Island it is Kona, and on Kauai  it is Koloa-Poipu-Waimea-Kekaha.  On Kauai, a small island, the 20 mile long  south side can be seen in a 2 hour drive.   Forget splitting your vacation between North and South!  Stay on North Shore and visit South side one half day, see the desert and resorts and be very pleased you chose the calendar photo  green North shore.  Oh, "rough water in winter on North Shore".   True, depending on waves, but there are several sheltered beaches.   We know.   We swim daily.
