In 1853, R.C. Wyllie started a coffee plantation on the site of what is now Princeville. The coffee plantation failed, but Princeville is now the largest planned development on Kaua’i. It’s home to some of Hawai’i's finest resorts, golf courses and restaurants. 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.

Drive North on the 56 28 miles through Kapa’a and Kilauea. The commercial part of Princeville is centered around the Princeville Shopping Center, located past the 27 mile mark on the right-hand side of the road.
