On the East Shore are the villages of Kapaa, Wailua, and Lihue where the shore line is rugged with only a few beaches where you can swim or snorkle.

The North Shore is the Princeville St. Regis resort and several condos resorts. The Princeville St. Regis has an elevator that takes you down the cliffs to the beach.

The West Shore is residential and wilderness with only one property that has cottages at the foot of the road to Kokee State Park.

Even though Kauai is cooler than the other islands it is humid and breezy. Guests from dry climates may require A/C to be comfortable.

Most of the condos do not have air conditioning so be sure to book your package with us and we will make sure that you have the A/C if you require it.
