Lihue

Lihue or LÄ«hue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Explore Lihue's surroundings by going to Swinging Bridge (in Hanapepe), Waimea Canyon State Park (in Waimea) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Eleele). And it doesn't end there: see the world from above with a helicopter tour, stroll through Hanalei Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Na Pali Coast State Park, and take in the dramatic scenery at Wailua Falls.

The Garden Isle
The northernmost of Hawaii's major islands, Kauai earned the nickname "Garden Island" because of its abundance of lush greenery and tropical plants, watered frequently with plentiful rainfall. Kauai's landscape continues to suffer from powerful erosion, resulting in natural attractions that include plunging canyons, tall mountain peaks, and the longest sandy coastline of all the Hawaiian islands. Offering a mild tropical climate and pristine wilderness areas largely unspoiled by mass tourism, Kauai is a great vacation destination for visitors eager to escape Hawaii's more crowded tourist resorts. For a genuine Kauai experience, join the locals for one of their famous traditional meat and vegetable feasts, prepared in underground pits lined with hot rocks.
