Lihue

Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Bring the kids along to Poipu Beach Park and Hanalei Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Lihue: Hanapepe (Salty Wahine Gourmet Hawaiian Sea Salts & Swinging Bridge), Waimea (Polihale State Park & Waimea Canyon State Park) and Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens (in Kilauea). The adventure continues: see the world from above with a helicopter tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Shipwreck Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kalapaki Beach, and identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas.

Discover how to plan a Lihue trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

San Diego to Lihue is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -2 hour difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from San Diego in December; daily highs in Lihue reach 79°F and lows reach 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 30th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
