Me: inexperienced driver with new license in the US, avoid Hways and drive on back roads.
Here's the plan: Possibly revisit Kuai after 6 yrs on a solo vacation and stay in NShore- town of Haneli. Planning to take the shuttle from Lihue airport all the way to Haneli and back.
Just wondering if it's realistic to rent a car from Princeville airport. I am NOT planning on seeing the whole Island again. Just want to be able to go to the beaches and do short 10 mins drive from Haneli town to beaches and to Kee Beach and short hikes on nature trails (incl. along the Napali coast hiking trail). I understand Kee Beach is only 10 mins away from Haneli and Princeville.
Questions I have:
Is the drive from Princeville airport to Haneli - Kee Beach going to be on a narrow road with hair raising twists and turns? Don't wanna deal with the feeling of falling off a cliff! I remember the ride from Poipu to NShore being a hilly, costal drive. But hoping last portion from Princeville to Kee Beach would be flat?!!
Didn't think it would be possible to go to Kaui wout a car but after doing much research it's seems doable since it's a second time visit. Planning to stay in the town of Haneli so I think I would be okay if I don't drive if I take a tour or two. Last time I drove by I was wishing I had stayed there!.
Please help! Can't find any info on this topic, anywhere!Edited: 22 March 2011, 07:18
