Aloha from the spectacular North Shore coastline of Kauai The Garden Island. The unit is located in a master planned community (Princeville) which has the most beautiful tropical scenery of all the Islands.
The unit is located in the center of the beautiful gated community of Princeville Kauai and is next to the Makai Golf Course and tennis facility. The Princeville Resort was voted the best resort on Kauai and the 8th best in the world by Conde Nast Traveler magazine and is dramatically situated on a bluffs located between the blue Pacific Ocean and craggy green mystical mountains and is indescribably majestic. It offers home sites condo's hotels shopping centers restaurants and 45 holes of golf. The world famous beaches of Hanalei Bay and Lumahai and the spectacular scenery (the movie Jurassic Park was filmed here) are just a short scenic drive away. Travel and Leisure magazine recently chose Kalalau Valley located on the North Shore's famous Kalalau Trail as one of the most beautiful places in America ""
The very best beaches in all Hawaii are located only 5 minutes from the bluffs of Princeville. They offer excellent snorkeling scuba diving wind surfing and kayaking. You can also kayak up the nearby rivers that connect the waterfalls to the ocean. You can also hike the Kalalau Trail on the Napali Coast which is located on the North Shore of Kauai and see the breathtaking views of the mountains waterfalls and the ocean. The North Shore of Kauai has some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere in the world.
Basically Kauai is a natures' paradise. The most beautiful areas are still pristine areas with no houses or hotels and the better beaches are generally not accessible directly from condos like Lumahai beach where scenes of South Pacific were filmed or Secret Beach and many others. You must search them out and go to them and one cannot live right next to them close to the beach. Some are a 1/2 mile walk from the roadway and others are a few hundred yards down a slope or through the trees etc.
In my personal opinion if you want to visit other beaches on other parts of the Island of Kauai the Marriott Hotel located in Lihue has the best Hotel beach on Kauai at Kalapaki Beach and it is free and accessible by all visitors. Jan and I go there when we want to be close to things beautiful like the Marriot and yet far away by ourselves on a little section of lovely beach in an Island Paradise. If you want more private beaches you need to go to the ones I have mentioned. As referred to earlier our very favorite private beach is 5 minutes from Princeville and is located in Hanalei Bay which has 3 miles of white sand coral free beach and seldom has over 50 people on the entire beach. There are a few mansions around but it is still private to a major degree.
