Niihau know-how

It’s hard to believe that just seventeen miles from the seaside resorts of Kauai island, there is a tiny stretch of land that has remained as it was since the days of early Hawaii. For Kauai citizens, the image of Niihau island rising from the horizon is  a familiar one, though most will never set foot on its shores.

For the most part, Niihau is limited to its seventy permanent residents and their families or to those who received a treasured invitation from the family who has owned the 69-square-mile island since 1864.

There are no paved roads, hospitals, police stations, grocery stores, or indoor plumbing

But, there are ways for you to enjoy it – see our Tripadvisor offer, below.
