Lots of goodies to buy and take home. At the sugar mill they will give you a tour and provide historical background of the sugar growing and mill. Interesting, quaint location with great coffee flavors at sugar mill. We bought 3 varieties including mango and coconut coffees.

I visited in Jan 2015 and I absolutely love this place. Even though it might look small on the outside it makes up in humbleness. I like the atmosphere. The stamping of your soap makes it unique. I wish I could of bought all the soap to try but my suitcase wouldn't of liked that....

Visited on 12/8/14 during our vacation. Not a lot of other visitors there when we visited so we must have visited between tour buses. Ladies working in shop were very nice answering our different questions and telling us about the stamps we used to stamp our soaps with after purchase. All the soaps smelled great. Can't say if they had... More

I visited there as the place was in the tour program, which aimed obviously at the tourists in shopaholic mood. I love bath products and it was interested to try different scent. I purchased pikake soap as I just wanted something Hawaiian. The soap smells great and these can be good souveniors. I do not think I would purposelt go... More

Lots of soap to choose from and every one of them smells great. I'm sure there's a scent for everyone. I loved all the stamps you can use to personalize your soap. It's a great bath soap and I personally loved the blueberry.

We stopped by at the North Shore Soap Factory on the way back from the USS Arizona tour. They had lots of strange scented soaps. The manufacturing of the soap was visible through the glass partitions. Worth the drive

Kids enjoyed seeing soap being made and stamping the bars for future gifts. But a tad pricy and off the path. Regardless glad we did take the time.

It's not much to look at but it definitely represents Hawaii. It's a hole in the wall but it has great values inside. Enjoyed it!

If you're a fan of re-invented industrial spaces and the pioneering entrepreneurs that support them, get to the Historic Waialua Sugar Mill! The North Shore Soap Factory and Hawaiian Bath and Body are housed in the Bagasse Bin (they'll be happy to let you know what that is). Wished we had come home with more than the bottle of Kukui...
