It's really easy to
find the Hula Hut!
I have some general maps to help you get acquainted with
the Island. Below you will find I have provided driving
directions to Sealodge Princeville.
Just a few Tips for your trip ...
Time is approximately 45 min to 1 hour drive from Lihue
to Princeville. The best priced grocery stores are
located in Kapa'a and Lihue--Safeway, Longs, FoodLand, Kmart,
Cost-U-Less & Walmart. I recommend picking up things
you might need in town before driving all the way to Princeville.
There is a Foodland grocery store in the Princeville Shopping
Center and numerous convenience stores around the Island.
Everything on the North Shore usually closes by 10pm. You
will have to make the 30 minute drive to a 24hr grocer if
you need something after hours.
of the highways are two or three lane highways (There
is no 'real' freeway on Kauai). The speed limit is 50 miles
an hour on these highways but you will often find locals
are used to the roads and drive a little faster. Scenic
turnouts are located off the Island's highways. These are
the best places to view the oceans and granduer of the island.
Do not stop on the side of the highway, for your own safety.
you are going to swim or be near the ocean use extreme caution!
Many people, local and visiting, often lose their lives
to the sometimes abruptly dangerous & swift ocean currents
surrounding Kauai. Always evaluate the water conditions
even if you are not going to swim in it--determine if the
water is safe or dangerous. Never turn your back on the
ocean EVER. The waves on Kauai's north shore (mostly during
winter months) and elsewhere have been known to sweep people
right off the rocks. Always swim when other people are nearby.
Remember the number one rule; Don't Panic. Keep your head
so you can get yourself out of a dangerous situation. Swim
under large waves and immediately go towards the area of
least resistance. Do not fight the current, you will lose.
The main objective should you ever get into trouble is to
swim sideways to the strong current away from rocks and
large waves. Look for your opportunity to get back to shore.
If not possible, tread water until help comes.
*Don't leave valuables in
your rental car. Break-ins sometimes do happen in paradise, so it is better
to be safe than sorry.
Following these precautions will ensure you have the
most wonderful vacation of your life!
Directions from the Lihue Airport (Main Airport
Upon leaving the Lihue airport turn right at the traffic
light and proceed North to Kapa'a, Kilauea and finally Princeville (Approximately
30 miles total). This road is called Kuhio Highway or Highway 56.
While driving through Kapa'a there will be a Safeway on your left hand side of
the road. This is a good place to stop and buy any groceries you might want.
There is another grocery store in Princeville, but many items are more expensive.
As you leave Kapa'a you will still be traveling
north. The ocean should be on your right. You will then pass through
Kilauea. Look for the Banana
Joe's sign (link opens in new window)
on the left. It is a great place to pick up local fresh produce.
