Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Explore Lihue's surroundings by going to Waimea Canyon State Park (in Waimea), Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha) and Hanalei (Hanalei Beach & Hanalei Valley Lookout). There's still lots to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, hike along Kalalau Trail, kick back and relax at Shipwreck Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Poipu Beach Park.

To see reviews, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Lihue attractions app .

Seattle to Lihue is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Seattle to Lihue due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Seattle in February: high temperatures in Lihue hover around 78°F and lows are around 66°F. On the 21st (Thu), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
