In 1853, R.C. Wyllie started a coffee plantation on the site of what is now Princeville, Kauai Hawaii. The coffee plantation failed, but Princeville is now the largest planned development on Kauai. It's home to some of Hawaii's finest resorts, golf courses, restaurants and accommodations in Kauai. Princeville is also the site of three beaches, Pu'u Poa (thumping point), Kenomene Beach, and Kaweonui Beach (mostly rocky but, like most beaches on Kauai, beautiful to behold). A wide reef creates pockets which are good for snorkeling, however, high surf creates rip currents which make it wise to stay near shore unless the sea is perfectly calm.
The gated resort town of Princeville sits atop bluffs overlooking the ocean. It is also home to one of the two best courses in Hawaii, the Prince Course flourishes on 390 acres of rolling tableland high above the Pacific amidst tropical jungle, streams, waterfalls and ravines. A demanding variety of holes require diligent club selection and a warm-up at the superb 13-acre practice facility. The 1st Hole may be the most difficult starting hole you will ever play and, in terms of shot options, the 10th Hole may be the most creative you will ever experience. To say Prince will take your breath away may be the ultimate understatement. It will also take your golf balls away. Play your most accurate clubs at most locations. This is a Golfers paradise.
Princeville, Kauai is also the gateway to an astonishing array of entertainment options on Kauai's North Shore. These include canoeing or kayaking emerald rivers, cruising and sailing along the famed Na Pali Coast, touring peaks and canyons by helicopter, hiking to secluded beaches, horseback riding to waterfalls, deep-sea fishing and whale watching. While most of these activities in Princeville get you up-close and personal with nature, there is also sightseeing and shopping at the Princeville Shopping Center and in the picturesque town of Hanalei.
The town of Princeville offers endless opportunities to experience the north shore of Kauai. A golf lovers paradise. Allure Kauai offers the best selection of luxury Kauai vacation home rentals, Princeville ocean-front condos, golf course villas, town homes, Kauai honeymoon cottages & suites, and so much more.
