Whether you’re looking for swimwear, flip-flops (locally known as slippahs), clothing by top surf brands, or beach gear, the area has plenty of beach spots for Kauai shopping.
If you’re staying in or near the north shore town of Hanalei, you’ll want to be sure to walk the quaint streets, sampling local fare and picking up some beach gear at Hanalei Surf Company. This Kauai store is full of character, situated in the old Hanalei School building. Located on the mauka (mountain) side of Kuhio Highway, you can’t miss this structure with its tall colorful surfboards standing on end out front. Browse the name brand collections for the latest swimwear, clothing, and sandals. They also offer snorkel gear rentals, surf board rentals (including a free strap to secure the board to the top of your car), and surfing lessons perfect for beginners.
