We tried more than one shave ice place on the Big Island and this was the best! We even visited more than once during our week-long vacation! They had tons of flavors and delicious ice cream and FREE parking nearby! Our favorite was the Rainbow with coconut ice cream!

Come on, you can't visit Kona without some shaved ice - and this is the place to get it! Colourful, fun snack for a hot Hawaiian day.

Excellent treat while visiting the island. Right in the center of town by the cruise port. Amazing amounts of flavors and the staff will even suggest things that go good together (i.e., MaiTai, Mango and Guava). Seating and spots to hang out front to finish it so it's not melting while you're walking.

The shop had a stand going during a monthly street fair. They were busy, but not too rushed to answer questions and offer suggestions.

Coming from Canada, I have never experienced shaved ice before so although I was a little hestitant and not a fan of slurpee drinks, I gave in an tried one. It was great! Your combo of three flavors can change your experience. The medium size was huge and even though it is only ice, it was still very filling. The staff was very friendly and helpful to us shaved ice virgins and gave us suggestions for our next purchase, which will happen later this week.
