    Fun Little Town
    Cute little town, well maintained with an assortment of gift shops, art galleries and places to grab a snack or a meal. Century old buildings have plaques with information about the structures. Lovely, very large monkey pod tree with twisted limbs. Fun place to stroll around for an hour or so.

    Nice assortment of shops
    Great way to spend a few hours while it rained. Lots of shops and places to grab a bite to eat. Some of the stores had some quite interesting merchandise! Don't miss the shave ice at The Fresh Shave. Best we had on the entire island!

    This is worth your time to wander
    We rented a car and ended up in Koloa many times over the 5 days we were on Kauai. The first time, we were too early for the shops to be open and we just wandered quietly and got some coffee and hit the historic market (that is now stealthily an ABC store). We came back again during business hours and wandered around even more. The history of the area is very interesting if you read the plaques on the buildings.

This is such a lovely little town. We so enjoyed just strolling through the little stores and shops here. They have some great little restaurants and even a couple little food truck area with excellent food. We really enjoyed our visit.

Very nice area to walk around and do some shopping. We took the Kauai Shuttle 30 from Poipu. Fresh Shave was the best shave ice we had on Kauai

This is a historic small town, one of the most interesting in the United States. Very scenic location. Several nice shops and places to pick-up snacks as souvenirs or to gobble up immediately.

Very charming town full of interesting stores and eateries. We had a great dinner and enjoyed walking around plus my favorite dive shop, Fathom 5 Divers, is located just off the main street.
