At just 25 miles long and 33 miles wide, Kauaʻi is relatively easy to explore. In the span of a few miles, you might pass by palm-fringed beaches, vivid green taro fields and soaring, verdant mountains. No matter how you get around the Garden Isle, prepare to be treated to some of the most spectacular scenery in all of the Hawaiian Islands. Click here for transportation options.
ARRIVING ON KAUA'I
Most visitors arrive on Kauaʻi at Līhuʻe Airport (LIH) on the island’s East Side. Many airlines offer nonstop service, though some visitors may choose to fly to Honolulu International Airport on Oʻahu first, then connect to Kauaʻi (depending on times and prices). Ground transportation includes rental cars (every major rental company is represented here), taxis and limited bus service. Several companies provide guided tours aboard motor coaches, mini-buses, vans and limousines. If you’re staying at a hotel on Kauaʻi, check to see if airport transportation is offered, as many provide complimentary pick-up and drop-off service.
GETTING AROUND KAUA'I
Please note: Rental cars are in high demand, so please plan ahead to secure a reservation. Information about vehicle rentals and ground transportation can be found here. There is one major highway that nearly circles the island; beginning in Līhuʻe and going north, Kūhiō Highway (Hwy. 56) goes to Kēʻē Beach past Hanalei. Beyond the Nāpali Coast on the West Side, Kaumualiʻi Highway (Hwy. 50) travels to Kekaha and then cuts inland, leading all the way back to Līhuʻe.
Drivers on Kauaʻi follow "aloha" traffic customs: drive slowly, yield to others and don’t tailgate. At one-lane bridges, yield to oncoming traffic. If you approach a bridge and there is a line waiting on the other side, stop and let your neighbors cross. Driving here is much more laid-back than the continental US, so relax, enjoy the scenery and drive safely— and plan on making plenty of impromptu stops along the way for photos and adventures.
