Our favorite shave ice of the trip. Their syrups taste fresh and not artificial - our coconut and pineapple combo was made with coconut milk. Delicious haupia and fresh fruit, toasted coconut on top. SO GOOD. It doesn’t look like much, sitting in the middle...of a strip mall, but definitely worth stopping in.More

What I LOVE about this place is the natural syrups that they use. I even got fresh mango pieces on my shave ice. The portion is generous and has the perfect texture. The only thing I didn't like about my visit is that they don't...customize flavors. Otherwise, it was amazing and we'll be back the next time we're on the island.More

The quality of ingredients is 5-star especially the quality and texture of the ice itself! Highly recommend!

So, I'm not going to lie. My family stayed in Kapaa for one week and we stopped here for shave ice nearly every day. At $6.50 for one, they're not the cheapest option on Kauai for shave ice, but I believe they're the most balanced...(not too sweet, but not too bland) and healthiest option. The last one I ordered there and added the ice cream - worth it!More

After following them on Instagram, we had to try once we got to Kauai. Sunday was our last date and it was a hot one. My husband had the Ube Bowl & I had the Triple Coconut Bowl. I've never had the Haupia foam or...the Ube foam and it was INCREDIBLE! There's great outdoor seating area in the back.More

Hands down best shave ice on Kauai! Fresh fruit, purée, and juice, with the best flavor! Other places you’ll find colored high fructose corn syrup with no flavor but not here! Highly recommend!!!

We absolutely LOVE Wailua Shave Ice! During our most recent visit to the island, we stopped here three times to enjoy some natural shave ice made with fresh fruit. Just go!

I have been to the shave ice truck in Portland and was thrilled to discover they had a truck on Kauai. The flavors are rich and intense. Love any of them with coconut. They also use sustainable products. The price is a bit high or...they should give a larger portion. Tables available to sit and enjoy.More
