When You Arrive
All commercial and cargo flights use the Lihue Airport, 2 miles east of the town of Lihue. It has just two baggage-claim areas, each with a visitor information center.
A rental car is the best way to get to your hotel, though taxis and some hotel shuttles are available. From the airport it will take you about 15 to 25 minutes to drive to Wailua or Kapaa, 30 to 40 minutes to reach Poipu, and 45 minutes to an hour to get to Princeville or Hanalei.
