Named after Prince Albert Edward Kauileaouli, Princeville is located on the wetter side of Kaua‘i, giving the area that rainforest look that is always breathtaking to see. If you’re planning on spending at least 48 hours of your stay here, we can promise they will all seem like paradise! What was once a genteel sugar plantation is now an exciting and vibrant community offering more than what you would expect from an island. Here’s some Princeville adventures to enjoy during your stay in our island paradise!
Day One Princeville Adventures
Chances are you may be too excited to eat on your first day in Princeville, but we hope that you will at least try a sweet treat from the Village Snack Shop & Bakery; it will help keep your energy levels high for the adventures you will experience! Starting out with a visit to the Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge, where the best viewpoints are located along the Kuhio Highway, this blissful retreat is a safe place for all the wildlife that make their home here on the island. From there, you can head to Hanalei Bay for more breathtaking views and an afternoon of frolicking on the beach. Kayak Hanalei rents beach equipment, or, if you’re feeling daring, why not schedule a kayaking tour for the afternoon and experience Hawaii the way people have for thousands of years? All that paddling will help you generate quite an appetite, so dinner and drinks at Happy Talk Lounge Restaurant and Bar is the perfect way to finish up day one of your Princeville adventures.
What Does Day Two Have in Store for You?
Each day is better than the last in Princeville, and your second day will be all the proof you need! After starting out your morning with coffee and a crepe from 5-5190 Kuhio Highway in Hanalei, the day will stretch out before you filled with endless possibilities! Your final day will be all about the beach. From Hideaways Beach, to the historic Hanalei Pier, to Lumaha’i Beach, we will be exploring, swimming, and possibly just sitting and watching the waves crash against the shore. There are no rules on how best to spend your beach day, except one: You are ordered to have fun!
Dinner at Home?
Our Princeville Vacation Rentals homes are designed to give the feel of family, and sometimes you may just want to stay in and relax with your family—we don’t blame you at all! Grill leftover fish or order some pizza for takeout and let your last evening be the best one of all. Reserve your stay today!
