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. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Princeville Makai Golf Club and Puu Poa Beach. Visiting Koke`e State Park and Koke'e Mountains will get you outdoors. Change things up with a short trip to Puuo Kila in Waimea (about 38 minutes away). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Pali Ke Kua Beach (Hideaway s Beach), pause for some serene contemplation at Wai`oli Hui`ia Church, identify plant and animal life at Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge, and play a few rounds at Princeville Golf Club - Prince Course.

Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Step off the beaten path and head to Allerton Garden and Polihale State Park.

And it doesn't end there: stroll through Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail, enjoy the sand and surf at Baby Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at National Tropical Botanical Garden, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
