Lihue is the county seat of Kauai County and is located along the southeastern coast of the island, between Hanamaulu and Puhi. There is a lot to see and do in the Lihue area, including the island's largest shopping centers and fine dining. There are three golf courses located in Lihue, and one of those has been named in the top ten best nine hole courses in the U.S. You are just minutes to the entire east and south coast beaches and swimming, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, shelling, windsurfing and more. Lihue is home to the Grove Farm Homestead, one of Kauai's oldest plantations. This 80-acre estate has the original family mansion, workers' quarters and many acres of beautiful gardens of tropical flowers and plants. The Kilohana Plantation is also open for tours and contains some of the nicest shops and art galleries on Kauai. You can ride in a horse drawn carriage along garden paths and tour the plantation's 34 acres. Other places to visit while in Lihue are the Kauai Museum and the Kauai Lagoons. Nearby attractions includes the Huleia National Wildlife Refuge, Kalapaki Beach, Ninini Beach, and the beautiful Wailua Falls.

Lihue Weather & Climate

The island of Kauai has a tropical climate with one of the most prolific rainfalls in the world; however, rainfall varies greatly depending on location. Mount Waialeale, in the center of the island, has the most rain with 486 inches per year; Waimea has approximately 21 inches and the rest of the island about 40 inches. (The town of Lihue on the southeastern coast falls into the latter category.) Temperatures vary more with location on the island than with season, anyplace elevated is naturally going to be chillier. Kokee State Park can get down in the 30s during the winter nights. Along the coast, temperatures stay in the 70s and 80s. Waters are calmer in the summer and the tradewinds blow more frequently then, as well. Most storms, even in winter, occur late in the evening or overnight, with plenty of sunshine during the day.
