Frequently asked questions

  • Consider alternative airports to save money. Enter your preferred departure and arrival points in the form fields, then click on the ‘Nearby airports’ function below. It will list the available options.
  • If your travel plans aren’t written in stone, click on the ‘Show flexible dates’ option to scan the flight deals for a selection of departure dates. If you find a better fare, book it.
  • You can also select the ‘Show options’ link to filter results for your preferred carrier, seating class, nonstop flights and refundable flights. Under ‘Sort & Filter’ to the left, you can even choose the time of day you’d like to fly.
  • The early bird catches the best deals, so book as soon as you’ve worked out your travel dates. The cheapest fares sell out first and prices climb as the departure date nears.
  • Think about bundling your hotels, flights and car rentals into a package deal to make your dollar go further.
  • Whenever possible, don’t travel during the busy season. Airfares are often at their most expensive during summer, school breaks and other vacation periods like Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
  • Honolulu, HI (HNL-Daniel K. Inouye Intl.) to Lihue Airport (LIH) - 42 minutes
  • Kahului, HI (OGG) to Lihue Airport (LIH) - 49 minutes
  • Los Angeles, CA (LAX-Los Angeles Intl.) to Lihue Airport (LIH) - 5 hours and 58 minutes
  • Nothing is more important than having your travel documents. Which to bring and how many depend on whether you’re traveling domestic or international. Be sure to check with your airline. In both cases, you’ll need to present some kind of government-issued ID.
  • Take a good book or a laptop crammed with your favorite films — it’ll help to while away time during your journey to Kauai. Or if you’re hoping to enjoy a nap, an eye mask will shield you from those bright cabin lights.
  • Temperatures in the cabin can go from hot to cold quickly, so it’s best to dress in layers. Consider compression socks too. They can help prevent your feet and legs from getting achy and swollen.
  • Be more flexible with your travel dates and hold out for deals on first or business-class airfares.
  • Low-cost airlines offer business-class seating at a fraction of the usual cost. Ditch the full-service carriers and look up these cheaper options.
  • Make the most of your airline’s customer loyalty program and upgrade your seat. You can also bid for an upgrade in an online auction if available.

A/C was not working on the ground so it was 110 degrees on the plane when we boarded and we sat there for almost 40 minutes because Austin’s gate system has not kept up with growth. Not Alaska’s fault 100% but it was miserable.

Kauai is the greenest and most lush Hawaiian island. With its breathtaking landscapes, tropical rainforests, sparkling waterfalls, jagged peaks and colossal volcanoes, “The Garden Isle” it’s no wonder thousands of travelers book flights to Kauai every year for a vacation on one of the most spectacular islands in the world. Don’t let the island’s reputation of being the wettest place on earth deter you from finding cheap flights to Kauai — the vast amount of rainfall is precisely why it’s so green, and on any given day you’re guaranteed to see at least one rainbow.

Kauai is less developed than its neighboring islands but still offers visitors the same level of service and exclusive resorts. It’s less crowded than the other islands so you’re bound to find miles of empty sandy beaches and jungles to explore. If you’re after a more active trip you can spend your days hiking the Kalalau Trail on the Na Pali coastline or diving among the sea turtles

  • Hiking is a great way to see Kauai, off the highways. Popular trails include the Kukui Trail , a 5-mile hike that drops into Waimea Canyon (Hawaii’s Grand Canyon – 10 miles long, 1 mile wide and 3,000 feet deep); the Kuilau Ridge Trail , a 4-mile round-trip; and the Kalalau Trail , which boasts gorgeous views of Na Pali Coast and Kee Beach (a great snorkeling spot).
  • Kauai has 50 miles of white sand beaches and all of them are free. The most beautiful beaches are Ke’e and Makua (surfers know it as Tunnels) on the north shore; Poipu in the south, a regular in various “Top 5” beach awards; Salt Pond Beach Park , also in the south of the island, and a great place to see Monk Seals and Kakaha Beach, which snakes along the west coast. Polihale stretches – all gold sand – for 7 miles and is a heart-stopping beautiful place to watch the sun set over Ni‘ihau island. Finally, Na Pali (which translates to “the cliffs”) on the west coast is remote, rugged and dramatic.
  • Kauai plays backdrop to several Hollywood movies. Take a tour around the film locations such as Moanaowaiopuna Falls , which appeared in Jurassic Park.  Elvis lived it up on the grounds of the Coco Palms for Blue Hawaii . Raiders of the Lost Ark made use of the island for its exterior shots. Anne Heche and Harrison Ford crashed down from the cliff around Shipwrecks Beach (Keoneloa Bay) in Six Days Seven Nights .
  • Sort of like Old Faithful, Spouting Horn on Lawa’i Road regularly shoots water up into the air. When a wave rushes under a lava shelf and bursts through a small surface hole, Spouting Horn expels. Evening is the time to witness it, that’s when the rush of water takes on the colors of the sunset.

Top 5 airlines serving from San Francisco to Kaua'i

They had all the passengers running around the airport as they kept changing the gate (from B7 to C1 to B16). Then they were saying the flight would be delayed and then they immediately boarded it, almost standing passengers who'd wandered off thinking it was delayed.

Good and easy. Seats are a bit crammed and plane was small.

Be prepared for departure delays at SFO while the runways are under construction. No fault of the airlines, so be flexible. Alaska is my favorite air line but needs to pay flight attendants for all the time they're at work, not just when in the air.

Crew was great snacks could be approved upon. Healthier options

Everything was great but there were no entertainment options available.

Flight was delayed 2 hours. It was too cold inside the cabin. My seat mate had no jacket so she was shivering the entire flight. The stewardess says there’s no available blanket.

The plane had to sit on the tarmac for 45 minutes once it had landed. Not Alaska’s fault.

Flight was cancelled just before we boarded. I had to stayed an extra night in SF and arrived one day late. Also I had to flight back JFK and not Newark since they didn't have flight to Newark until very late the following day. A real bad experience on this flight. It took me 2 days to get back home.

The flight was delayed by more than two hours. A notification ahead of time would be most helpful.

Plane hit turbulence diverted to Houston. We'll probably get in after 3am

My seat was changed at the last minute and I was moved to the last row, right next to the bathroom despite selecting my seat well in advance. I was also made to check my carry on due to space but when I got on the plane there was significant empty overhead space. Picking up my carry on from the luggage carousel added time to my trip which had already been extended due to delay.

There was plenty of overhead room but half of the passengers were told they had to check their carryon bags. My partner and I checked in as early as possible and our seats were split across the aisle.

Flew first class so everything was great. But maybe because the flights were red eye, no meals were served, just chips. I flew Alaska Air 1st class at 9PM (2 hour flight) and they served beef short rib sliders!

Paid premium for Delta only to be on safe but tired old 767 with ancient cabin in mediocre condition. Poor wifi and horrible inflight entertainment. Hardly a premium experience. Should have flown SW and had fun flight crew and no pretense

The plane from SNA wouldn’t start after 5 tries. The team gave me an option of flying direct from LAX and giving me a Lyft ride there! Perfect!

There was a loud squeaky sound the whole time we were flying.

I didn’t not like that I could not select my seat and ended up with the worse seat.

The landing was bad and the hostess came two times and i was sleeping but when she served the person that nexts to me I woke up and she didn’t even asked me if I need any drink or snacks two times!!!!

The seats are too hard for long flights but otherwise- the process was smooth, the staff attentive, and there was to keep you occupied during the journey if needed.

Plane was late because of a mechanical malfunction and the food listed as available was not. Flight attendants seem over worked and under paid. They just done seem happy. And that can be seen in their faces.

Flight crew was great! It’s very special having native Hawaiians as flight attendants. I only fly Hawaiian Airlines when going to the Aloha states. Flight crew with other airlines don’t come close to your employees. Having a breakfast sandwich included on the flight was a treat and delicious. I pack a carry on only because of the extra baggage fee. I wish I didn’t have to haul even that around. I’d check baggage ( eliminate carry on completely)if it was lowered from $30 to $20. $10 is $10, and the extra fee (all airlines have) defeats the joy of finding a good round trip rate, Keep up the good work in knowing the personal qualities and people skills you want for personel you hire.

Great flight experience going from Honolulu to Kauai. Nice short flight, so some things don't really qualify for an excellent rating, food & entertainment, since there wasn't any. Check in was nice and easy, crew was great, I'm 6'7" so the seats could have had a bit more room for my knees. But I survived.

There weren’t a lot of choices of movies to watch for the “in flight entertainment”. It was kind of a hassle to switch between Wi-Fi hubs to check the flight tracker, and then back to the other for wi-fi access

There needs to be clarification on what are considered medical items, as an exception to the 2 items per person carry-on limit. How can a C-PAP be more of a medical item than prescription medicines that must be taken daily for survival, such as diabetes medicines? Diabetics take a slew of must-have medication every day, enough to fill a small bag. That bag can fit under the seat in front of a passenger along with a purse, but we are not allowed to count those two together as one item? Well, that depends on the gate attendant you talk to. It's confusing and irresponsible to suggest we may have to check something as necessary as a purse or prescription med, if we also want to carry on a relatively small (backpack size) bag, with an emergency change of clothes and toiletries in case of an issue with the checked bags (which is suggested by any travel expert). Shouldn't carry-on items be by the amount of space they take, rather than a count of items? We're told that if we can combine three items into two bags, then we can take them. Those two bags will take up the same space as the three, but they will be far less flexible with how they can be fit into the space. How sensible is that?

Everything went smooth! Flight attendants were very friendly. The passengers, well, that’s another thing. The passenger sitting next to me thought both armrest belong to him- his family member or father was jumping over seats instead of asking his son to get up and go around him -attendant had to tell this family a few times to put their seats up while we were taking off to stop jumping over seats, it’s just crazy how some people have no plane etiquette and I can never imagine my sons, young adults acting that way!!!! I would have spoke up, but I already have high anxiety getting on planes and I was just trying to get to my vacation spot.

Cabin was clean but staff would not provide pencils when they asked us to fill out paperwork. Booked as a group and they chose seats that were far apart instead of together.

Liked all aspects except boarding notification. Long delay with little support in knowing about change in boarding gates .

I liked my seat and the boarding was seamless once I arrived at the gate. The food was not good and they didn't have any vegan options. Some of the crew members were lacking empathy or personality

Well organized staff friendly and great attitude. Little awkward and slow to check a bag in Lihue but otherwise a pleasant experience

The flight was so cold from Vegas to Hawaii. Everyone was so cold they put on goodies. They made us buy blankets for $13 each for 4 people. The plane was like an icebox. Now on the way back you made me pay extra so my family can sit together. Will not use you again.

United is today and old, the planes, the staff, the business processes. Yet they expect premium prices for a less than average flight experience. I should have remembered to stay away from them and will remember to stay away from them in the future since I'm traveling a lot again. In a nutshell, they suck eggs.

The entertainment wasn’t playing in the app or online.

Horrible, the flights kept delaying, so it is obvious that we won't be able to make it to the next connection. No easier/real agent on site to help you figure this out. UA agent on other counters refuse to assist you and direct us to use the QR code/call customer service. So inefficient and poor. While technology seems convenient, but it's not the best interest/experience for customers need help while there is active issue need assistance.

Flight was delayed due to the late arrival of the catering truck, which is quite unacceptable. There was a beverage service, but no pretzel, or cookie, or nuts were served in coach.

On time take off…US cabins look tired and need of refresh!

Crew was great and did their best to make us comfortable and captain came out at the beginning to announce why the flight was delayed, weather situation up ahead, and kept us updated throughout the flight.

United WiFi is consistently unusable (it can take 10 mins to load a single web page). If you need Wifi to do work, be prepared to lose half a day of productivity.

Awful. I got stuck next to a person carrying a dog and behind someone with a dog. People need to board these dogs downstairs. The cabin is crowded enough with your pets

Packed in like sardines, very uncomfortable. Sitting the aisle my shoulder was rammed into numerous times by rushing flight attendants. Also flight was very cold.

Airline did not explain reasons why flight was delayed two hours. Explanations were badly needed and rarely provided. Problem seemed to clearly be the airline’s fault and not the fault of the weather or airport.

The flight was delayed two hours, with no information as to why. The gate also changed several times which was aggravating. Would not fly through DFW again.

The inability to be flexible when you need to change a Basic Economy flight, when your company demands you book through a third party, causes raw feelings about the whole experience. A major airline should realize business and personal plans change all the time. I must save my company money on travel. Even if you have to charge me for the change, I get it. But being so rigid with a policy is not the best customer service.

WiFi was down so no entertainment and I could not work either. The flight was Very turbulent at the end (the last 20 min felt like an eternity) I appreciated the pilot for getting us there safely. The flight attending in first class was kind and attentive to everyone.

The gate crew did try to help, however they lacked the information as to whether the flight will operate or not. Being delayed 6 hours and in a limbo on whether the flight will operate or not is not fun. The airline having staffing issues is not encouraging at all.

From check-in staff to in-flight staff, everyone was wonderfully kind

The A321(?) model of the flight for 5+hrs has no seat back screens. Getting the american airlines wifi experience to watch movies on your own devices is not the same.

The flight was delayed several times without explanation. The seats were terribly uncomfortable and wifi isn’t included. All these make for a less than ideal flight.

Internet service was erratic. Crew service was poor and slow. My luggage on this non-stop flight was lost and not recovered

Flight was 1/2 hour delayed leaving Phoenix. Otherwise it was an average flight. Flight crew on this trip was very nice.

Horrible - they lied to me about baggage & boarding, even though I specifically spoke to their agents the day before my flight about my issue. When I showed up they did not let me board and stranded me at my airport until I bought a new flight with money I did not have to spend.

Southwest Airlines is proud to serve Lihue Airport.

Arriving in Lihue means you’ve arrived in the heart of Kauai’s cultural and historical region. A traveler favorite for its convenience to the airport and the island’s primary port for cruise ships and cargo, there’s plenty to explore in and outside of town.

Fans of ancient architecture will enjoy a visit to the Menehune Alekoko Fishpond. Ancient Hawaiians would construct fishponds to passively catch fish, and this remarkable example was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. It comes with more than that designation, however—the legend of Menehune, a Hawaiian people who were noted for their engineering. The legend says that the Menehune lined up for 25 miles to pass stones to the site where the fishpond was built—and they accomplished this in a single night. After exploring this marvel of engineering, take in the natural marvel of Huleia National Wildlife Refuge. While visitors can’t enter the refuge in order to protect the flora and fauna inside, it can be viewed from an overlook near the Menehune Alekoko Fishpond.

Get a taste of Kauai and Hawaiian cuisine with a visit to one of the area’s favorite local spots. From street foods to fine dining, there’s something for every kind of eater in Lihue. Hawaiian plate lunches are a go-to for locals and visitors alike. If you’re unfamiliar, a traditional plate lunch has similarities to the mainland lunchtime staple the meat-and-three and Japanese bento boxes, but they’re 100% Hawaiian. Mounds of white rice and macaroni salad and a protein comprise a traditional plate lunch, but you can heap on as many entrees as you please. Choose fresh seafood as your protein or Kalua pork (or both) to sample the best that the area has to offer.

Immerse yourself in the wonders of the Garden Island. Southwest Airlines flies to Lihue Airport, which makes starting your exploration of Lihue (Kauai) simple. And when you book with Southwest, you can book with confidence, knowing that the process will be straightforward from flight selection to checkout. Of course, having a memorable trip is about more than finding a great deal on a flight. Learn more about the Southwest ® Experience and book your next flight to Lihue Airport.

There's Much More To Experience In Poipu, Hawaii!

This article has been refreshed with new things to do in Poipu, Kauai, as well as photos, tips, and other info related to each attraction. Whether someone wants to spend their trip lying in the sand, head to a historic plantation town, or even catch up on a surf lesson, Poipu is the place to travel this summer and beyond!

Things To Do

There are many reasons to visit Kauai , and Poipu is at the top of the list. It really is a slice of paradise. Here is our complete guide and list of things to do in Poipu, Kauai.

Become Airborne At Shaka Zipline Kauai

For those seeking a thrill in Poipu, Hawaii, heading to Shaka Zipline Kauai is a great choice. Here, guests can have the best view ever of three unique valleys and dramatic backdrops of mountains and Kauai's south shore.

On top of that, this ziplining opportunity is a great way to support local businesses, as it's run by local Hawaiians. A standout feature of this attraction is that families or groups can choose an eight or five-line zipline where five guests go together.

Enjoy The Soft Sands At Shipwreck Beach

  • Beach in Kauai County, Hawaii

Something to do while in Poipu is head over to Shipwreck Beach, a local and tourist hot spot. Here, guests can find a local favorite for surfing and body surfing located in front of the Grand Hyatt Hotel. There is parking at the Hyatt, which makes this more accessible than some of the other beaches on the island.

Shipwreck Beach is one of the most-visited spots on Kauai for adventurers and thrill-seekers, as it boasts cliffs, miles of terrain to hike, and a laid-back, quintessential Hawaiian energy. In addition, this beach isn't super-crowded during early morning hours and weekdays, especially during non-tourist heavy seasons.

If anyone wants to have an authentic Hawaiian memory and even make new friends, this is a great location to spend the day. Guests of the Grand Hyatt Hotel will have priority to sections of this beach, although it is public.

It's recommended to request a beach chair, grab some towels from the hotel, and set up camp earlier in the day. Because of its popularity, this beach does fill up by noon on weekends and holidays (as does the parking lot).

Go Back In Time At Old Koloa Town

  • What: Charming town rooted in its plantation past
  • Where: About 20 minutes west of Līhuʻe

The next sight to experience while in the Poipu area is Old Koloa Town , a historic community with an assortment of gift shops, art galleries, and places to grab a snack or a meal. What gives this town an edge is that it features century-old buildings and offers a glimpse into Hawaii's rich history.

On top of the cute shops and places to dine, Old Koloa Town feels very reminiscent of old-world Hawaii and is a favorite stop among locals and travelers alike. Kōloa opened its first sugar mill in 1835, marking the beginning of the now-loved and forever-photographed town. It has stood as a pillar of authentic Hawaii for many decades and has a thriving community of indigenous Hawaiian people.

The gateway to the Kōloa/Poʻipū area is called the Tree Tunnel, which is where guests can drive a eucalyptus-lined street to the entrance of the city. This is only one of the many stunning features of this town, with shops now occupying the plantation buildings along Kōloa Road.

It offers excellent snorkeling spots and gets regular wildlife visitors, like green sea turtles and monk seals, who like to soak up the sun on the sand.

It’s even got a crescent-shaped cove ideal for safe swimming. Behind the beach is a large grassy area, ideal for throwing a Frisbee or simply strolling through to see different vantage points of palm trees framing the beautiful ocean. There’s even a playground for kids!

Witness The Spouting Horn Blowhole

This unique attraction features saltwater spurting 50 feet into the air. This is because seawater rushes under a lava shelf and bursts through the opening, producing an impressive spray. At sunset, the salt water from the spouting horn blowhole is especially spectacular as it emits lights in the colors of the rainbow.

Visitors may also hear a hiss or a roar as the water spouts up, which is the basis of a Hawaiian legend about a boy and a lizard.

Legend states that a giant lizard guarded the coastline. One day, a boy entered the water, trying to outsmart the lizard. The lizard attacked him, but the boy escaped, sneaking under a lava shelf and through a small hole to the surface. The lizard followed the boy but got stuck.

The hiss and the roar visitors hear are meant to be the ancient lizard stuck in the lava tube.

Tips For Visiting Poipu, Hawaii

For those coming to Poipu, Hawaii, there are some things to be aware of. First, like all of Hawaii, Poipu holds many sacred lands and spaces, all of which must be respected by visitors.

While on beaches, trails, and walking through historic towns, it's imperative that guests stay polite and avoid littering, destroying things, and being disruptive to local life. Nature is a major part of Hawaii, so guests are responsible for keeping the island as beautiful as it was when they arrived.

Additionally, Poipu is one of the most popular places for Kauai residents and travelers, meaning it can become crowded in the summer and spring during the prime vacation season. With those times also comes more congestion throughout Hawaii and more expensive flights and hotel stays.

Guests will also want to rent a car or stay at a hotel in town or on the beach to avoid high taxi rates or having to rely on limited public transport.

How To Spend The Perfect Day In Poipu

Start the day with a cup of coffee and an Acai bowl from Little Fish Coffee. There might be a line, but it’s worth waiting. Then, head over to Poipu Beach. The morning is the best time to see the green sea turtles that sunbathe near the little crescent-shaped beach.

There’s even a chance of a monk seal spotting! Enjoy the beach without the crowds before returning to the hotel for a quick swim in the pool.

In the afternoon, head to Shipwrecks Beach to start the Mahaulepu Heritage Trail. This will take a few hours. Enjoy the spectacular views while breathing in the fresh ocean air. Bring a hat and some sunscreen as parts of this trail are hard to find shade. After the hike, head to The Shops at Kukuiula for some light shopping, a well-deserved snack, and maybe even a little entertainment.

Finish the night at the Beach House. A delicious dinner. A colorful sunset. A few Mai Tais. There’s no better way to spend the evening in Poipu!
