“Welcome to Kauai... Let's Eat!!!”
Kalapaki Beach Hut is a great way to immerse yourself when you get off the plane in Kauai. LOCATION: It is an easy 2.2 mile drive from the Lihue airport. Left on Hwy 51/Kapule Hwy at the airport exit... Left on Rice Street at the car dealership. Look for it on the left just past the entrance to the Marriott resort. It's next to a surf shop with a yellow sign. VIBE: This is a small beachy place with walk-up, order-at-the-window service. Lots of surfers and other beach goers were here. We found and sought it out as being a top local pick. VIEW: Walk upstairs to take in the view overlooking Kalapaki Beach and feel your stress melt away, especially after a day of travel to get here. FOOD: We visited as soon as we arrived on day 1 and again before we went to the airport to leave. The blue cheese burger was super-messy and delicious both times. My partner had the grilled Ono (fish) sandwich on the first visit and grilled sword sandwich on the second. It was fresh, full of flavor and he could clearly taste the lime both times. My mom enjoyed a different salad each time and raved about the local dressings. PRICE: It is in line with standard higher Hawaii prices compared to the mainland, and well worth it.
