Big cliffs and Small Town charms in North Shore Kauai

Dramatic cliffs. Lush golf courses. A charming town. North Shore Kauai is worth the trip.

The “Napali Coast” is a jaw-dropping 17-mile coastline of high green cliffs. You have to see the azure of the ocean, juxtaposed with 3000-foot tall cliffs, to truly believe its magnificence.

Venture into Princeville for a more understated experience. Here, you will find iconic golf courses with amazing views. In Hanalei town, you can connect with the locals, stroll botanical gardens, browse galleries and learn about Kauai’s past at Waioli Mission House.
