Princeville ©
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. Get outdoors at Princeville Golf Club - Prince Course and Pali Ke Kua Beach (Hideaway s Beach). Step out of Princeville with an excursion to Kauai Path in Kapaa--about 36 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Princeville Botanical Gardens, look for gifts at Banana Joe's Fruitstand, enjoy the sand and surf at Anini Beach, and have some family-friendly fun at Kauai Mini Golf & Botanical Gardens.

Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Take a break from the city and head to Poipu Beach Park and Spouting Horn. Get out of town with these interesting Poipu side-trips: Polihale State Park (in Waimea), Kayaking & Canoeing (in Kapaa) and Lihue (Ninini Point Lighthouse Cache Site & Wailua Falls). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Shipwreck Beach, admire the natural beauty at Allerton Garden, trek along Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail, and take in the views from Swinging Bridge.
