Make a Quick Stop for a Chilled Delight
Koloa Mill Ice Cream & Coffee is a good idea to start off the morning right when you know it’s going to be a hot day. Get some shaved ice for the whole family, and an iced coffee to-go! Or, try out fun ice cream flavors like Black Cherry Truffle or Macadamia Nut Crunch. This is some of the best Kauai desserts out there!
Lappert’s Hawaii has comfy outdoor seating, so you can enjoy the Hawaiian sun while still getting your chill on with tropical ice cream flavors like coconut and pineapple.
Ishihara has some great ice cream flavors too, but the best thing here is the poke! Don’t get your lunch served hot when it’s already hot outside! Go for a cool option, like the Ahi Poke. you can even sample the different kinds before you decide what to get. This sushi-style fish dish is a great way to enjoy fresh seafood while actively cooling off.
Then Head to the Water!
Take a kayaking tour down one of the rivers. Kauai is a wonderland of beautiful nature scenery inland, but on a hot summer day, you’ll want to be in or around one of the rivers, or the cool Pacific Ocean waters. Kauai is home to three gorgeous and navigable rivers: Hanalei River, Wailua River, and Huleia River.
Take a scuba diving tour off the any of the shores on the island for a dip in the ocean. This is an awesome way to not only cool off and escape from the summer sun, but to get up close and personal with the breathtaking sea life native to Kauai. Swim with the dolphins, bright and shimmering schools of tropical fish, and the majestic honu—Hawaiian green sea turtles).
Before the Sun Goes Down, Cool Off at the Best Beachside Bar
Duke’s Kauai is the definition of dining with a view. Count on enjoying the salty ocean breeze, because you’ll be right next to the water at Duke’s. Make sure to try something refreshing and new, while you’re here! There’s the Coconut Hiwa Porter or the Kua Bay IPA if you’re in the mood for local beer, or if you want an ice-cold cocktail, try the Pineapple Mojito or the Wiliwili-Rita (made with reposado mezcal, lychee liqueur, and lime juice). If you really want to spoil your group, surprise everyone with a bottle of Rombauer. It’s the perfect treat for a hot summer’s day by the oceanside.
