Kaua’i is a place that you are either in love with, or you’re not. And when you are in love with this magical island, living here is a dream come true. Every day is a masterpiece of stunning beauty: Emerald valleys, wind swept cliffs, aqua ocean, and the most beautiful, epic sunsets.
Each day you have the opportunity to enjoy a permanent holiday. Whether you work or not, each sunset the island celebrates “pauhana” (end of work) and there is almost always a beautiful place to enjoy an incredible view and appreciate life.
Living on the North Shore is even more epic than these photos. Even being “stuck in traffic” can be very enjoyable because the views are amazing!
What’s it like to live on the North Shore?
The North Shore of Kaua’i generally consists of Moloa’a all the way to Haena. The two sleepy surf towns are historic Hanalei and Princeville up the hill. There are grocery stores, delicious restaurants, post offices, and great shops in the towns of Hanalei, Princeville, and Kilauea with a main hub of banks, gas station, and Ace Hardware in Princeville.
Many people love our farmers markets. There are wonderful markets all over the North Shore throughout the week. Throughout the year, there are many awesome events for the whole family: from surfing, to outdoor movies, to live music, to special events for the keiki (kids).
In the main town of Lihue (where the airport is) there is everything from Costco to hospitals, movie theaters to bowling, Pier One Imports to Macys. Many people enjoy buying certain items online to provide more of a selection.
Things move a bit slower here and everyone stays on “island time”.
The term is living aloha…. and everyday you have the opportunity to do just that.
