What to Expect
Wa'apa Road, Lihu'e, East Kauai
Stately cruise ships use this harbor as their port-of-call. It is located at the mouth of the Hule'ia Stream which creates a natural channel for the large ships. This harbor and nearby Niumalu Beach Park were pictured in the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark.
From Highway 50, just past Mile Marker #1 going toward Lihu'e, turn right on Nawiliwili Road. Go approximately 2 miles down the road and turn right on Wa'apa. The harbor will be on the left.
Major port for Kauai
Niumalu Beach is located to the west of the harbor
Kalapaki Beach is located to the east, in front of the Kauai Marriott
