Princeville is a 9,000acre, upscale, unincorporated, master-planned community of vacation homes and condos on the north shore of the island of Kauai in Kauai County, Hawaii. Visiting Hanakapiai Falls and Na Pali Coast State Park will get you outdoors. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Secret Beach and Koke`e State Park.

Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Hanalei Beach, take a memorable tour with Tours, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge, and stroll through Puu Poa Beach.
