This place is right next to Bubba burger in Hanalei a town Center, so there is usually a line. There shave ice is generous and well-made, and you can get it with or without ice cream. I prefer it with. I loved their "Bali Hai Sunset", which was a shave Ice with Mango, strawberry and (I think) Guava? On top... More

This is a must after a day of sun and snorkeling ( or shopping ;) ! It's good to the last drop - add the MAC ice cream in the middle - its worth it ! You can not get this anywhere else in the world ...

Very laid back place, to the point of being frustrating. Guess I need to lay off the coffee from next door. Shave ice was good. Coconut and passion fruit were the faves

This is the best place on Kauai for a macadamia nut milkshake. Just ignore the 4 scoops of ice cream per milkshake and drink it down for a slice of heaven.

A must try!! The line gets a little long, and no seating as the restaurant next door has a sign posted no shaved ice! It is worth the wait

When it's hot almost any cool treat will do. A fair selection of flavors but you'll be on your own to decide what you Like best. They add a scoop of ice cream at the bottom which is a nice treat. Good but a little sweet. The wait can be long so that's a bit of a distraction.

My friends and I enjoyed our shave ice here after a day at the beach. So yummy! It was perfect! I got the rainbow flavors with the macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom. I wish I was eating some right now!

My hubby and father in law bought milkshakes from Shave Ice Paradise. They were very small for their price tag, and they were just meh... Next door at bubba's you get a better bang for your buck.
