Though worth the trip, it is not easy to get to and from Princeville.

First, one has to get to Hawaii  (Honolulu in Oahu), known by ancient natives as “the gathering place.”  Serviced by most major airlines Honolulu International (HNL) is the only way onto the island by air except for nonstop flights from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, Oakland, Portland, Phoenix, San Diego, San Jose, and nearby Maui.  Lihue (LIH) is the Garden Island’s commercial airport.

When leaving Lihue Airport head north on Highway 51 towards Kapa'a.  Highway 51 quickly becomes Highway 56/Kuhio Highway.  Stay on 56 until you pass Mile Marker 27, then make a right onto Ka Haku Road.

Leaving will be practically easier but psychologically harder.
