No--it's very dark.

There are some street lights in a few areas. I know there is at least one next to Brennecke's Beach Broiler in Poipu. We walk down there a lot. What hotel are you staying at?

Outside of towns, no. The hwy north of Kapa‘a has very "bright" reflectors down the middle of the road.

It looks like there are plenty of street lights along Kuhio Highway at Kauai Beach Resort and also in the parking lot (checking Google Maps, street view).

The toughest problem you will have is not missing the turn to get into the resort.

There are lights where the hotels are in the towns but once you get passed that, its dark until you get to next town again... But not all towns have hotels so it'll be dark.

Its beat to get back into your town/resort before it gets dark.

We make it a practice to be back home before dark as far as driving goes....in most cases , but not all.

Most roads are not lit for the most part, and in many instances no reflectors....we are very thankful for the divider and side border reflectors and all of our roads should have them. They are a great help.

we are not visitors, and quite famllar with most of our roads, and know exactly what the problems are for the different areas.

So, we reserve our dinner reservations for first seatings.....and do as little night driving as possible. Summer time, our days are longer, and that helps.

We have also chosen to live where we can walk to several different restauants, or have a short drive of a few minutes in Lihue, where we do have street lights or the main road has reflectors and not too bad.
