Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lihue: Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha), Hanalei (Hanalei Beach & Hanalei Valley Lookout) and Waimea Canyon State Park (in Waimea). The adventure continues: take in the dramatic scenery at Wailua Falls, kick back and relax at Poipu Beach Park, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and admire the majestic nature at Wailua River State Park.
