Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Poipu Beach Park and Shipwreck Beach. Get outdoors at Na Pali Coast State Park and Scuba & Snorkeling. Venture out of the city with trips to Waimea Canyon State Park (in Waimea) and Hanalei Beach (in Hanalei). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Tunnels Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kalapaki Beach, take in the dramatic natural features at Spouting Horn, and admire the sheer force of Opaekaa Falls.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Relax by the water at Waikiki Beach and Sunset Beach Park. Your inner history buff will appreciate USS Arizona Memorial and Valley of the Temples. Venture out of the city with trips to Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park), Ehukai Beach Park (in Pupukea) and Waimea Bay (in Haleiwa). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, see the vivid underwater world at Pele's Chair, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Honolulu vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Traveling by flight from Lihue to Honolulu takes 2.5 hours. In September, plan for daily highs up to 88°F, and evening lows to 76°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
