Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Visit Ke'e Beach and Shipwreck Beach for some beach relaxation. Get outdoors at Koloa Zipline and Na Pali Coast State Park. Take a break from Lihue with a short trip to Hanalei Valley Lookout in Hanalei, about 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, stop by Pohaku T's, and take in the dramatic scenery at Wailua Falls.

For where to stay, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, read Lihue journey planner.

London, UK to Lihue is an approximately 20.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Greenwich Mean Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time is minus 10 hours. Traveling from London in March, expect Lihue to be much hotter, temps between 30°C and 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Mon) so you can travel to Kailua-Kona.

Heart of the Kona Coast

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Kick off your visit on the 30th (Tue): kick your exploration up a notch at Hawaii Forest and Trail, get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, and then kick back and relax at Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay). Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: look for all kinds of wild species at Kanaloa Octopus Farm, then relax in the rural setting at Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.

Plan a trip to Kailua-Kona easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Fly from Lihue to Kailua-Kona in 2.5 hours. March in Kailua-Kona sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 24°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to drive to Hilo.

On the 2nd (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, then take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), then see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, and finally contemplate the geological forces at Kīlauea.

Honolulu, Oahu

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Step out of the city life by going to Lanikai Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Go for a jaunt from Honolulu to Kapolei to see Ko Olina Lagoons about 36 minutes away. There's much more to do: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, tour the pleasant surroundings at Koko Crater Railway Trail, and admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls.

For reviews, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, read our Honolulu trip itinerary builder app.
