On the southern coast of Kauai sits a small town by the name of Poipu. Poipu is full of wonderful restaurants, beaches and the best authentic shaved ice I have ever had. Kauai is a small island so I recommend renting a car so each unique section of the island is accessible. Not only can you find authentic Hawaiian shaved ice but many fishing and whale watching boats leave from harbors very close by. If you find yourself on the garden island be sure to stop in to Poipu and grab yourself a cold Hawaiian treat.
