Right on the Kapaa bike trail we have very reasonably priced bicycles for rent. Kapaa Beach Shop has other beach gear for rent such as boogie boards, beach chairs, wet suits and all your snorkeling needs. We have a very large selection of snorkeling and diving masks even if you have a prescription. A great range of fins including those for free diving and scuba, a good selection of spear guns, knifes, gloves, booties and water socks. We have some of the best prices for new bc's and regulators and gauges. We have wet suits for sales for adults and even toddlers, a good selection of rash guards for adults and children.

The folks at Kapaa Beach Shop are real people, they treat you like a friend and aren't out to empty your wallet like some of the franchise snorkel gear shops in Hawaii. The equipment is top notch. We rented beach chairs (very nice), snorkel gear and a wet suit without breaking the bank. For the adventurous they even have fishing... More

We rented tanks, weights and wetsuits from Mike and Janie. They gave us directions to some great shore dives! Have already recommended them to some friends traveling to Kauai in April. ~Joe & Vickie, Colorado

We were specifically looking to rent cruisers to ride the Kapaa bike path and that is was what made us stop here. They had adorable beach cruisers that included actual metal baskets (not a weird cloth bag) and bike locks. It was cheap to rent them all day. They were friendly and helpful and we had a blast. Would definitely... More

We've been to many rental places Kauai through the years, but we've found our "go-to" place with Kapaa Beach Shop. We rented Tommy Bahama beach chairs (THE best beach chairs ever) for $10 per week and boogie boards for $15/week (each). That's a deal. And if you're there an extra day beyond 7, they won't charge extra. Super cool attitudes.... More

Janie, Mike & their dog Chaos are really knowledgeable & friendly. I go back every year and they remember me! Their equipment is good, they fit you for snorkel gear and really know the Island. Every year I rent snorkel gear, chairs and umbrella from them. It is half the price of the places in Poipu. Be sure to rent... More

After Snorkel Bobs smashed our wallet last time, we read about Kapaa Beach Shop here on TA. For 15.00 for a whole week we were set up. I had to wonder if this was a pay for what you get outfit, but not at all. The owner took the time to fit our fins and mask properly with some tips... More
