The Koloa, Hi, Rundown

Located on the southern side of Kauai, Koloa, HI, is a very small town of less than 2,000 people. This town was the site of the first sugar plantations in Hawaii. Visit the Sugar Monument and learn about the history of sugar in Hawaii and how the industry shaped the state. See more of the past in Old Town, which has been carefully designed to look just like it did in the 1800s. Inside the Old Town Mall is the Koloa History Center.

There are also plenty of activities to do around Koloa, HI. You can bike and trek along the Koloa Heritage Trail or swim and sunbathe at Poipu Beach. Snorkelling and diving are also popular activities. The beauty of Koloa, HI, lends itself to horseback riding as well. Take the time to visit Spouting Horn Geyser, the Puuwanawana Volcanic Cone, or Keoneloa Bay archaeological sites. Don’t forget to reserve some time for golfing at Kiahuna Golf Club. Of course, the biggest attraction of any Hawaiian location is its natural beauty, and that is celebrated at the Botanical Garden. Commissioned by the United States Congress, the Botanical Garden showcases the native flora and fauna and local legends and customs.

When To Go

There are only two distinct seasons in Koloa, HI: Winter and summer. Winter is the rainy season with frequent storms and showers. Summer, on the other hand, sees only the occasional light rain shower. Lately, the winter storms have led to flooding and extensive damage. The summer remains the better of the two seasons, when even the occasional showers rarely require rain gear. Hawaii as a whole has a very temperate climate, which rarely gets too hot and almost never gets cold. This is one of the reasons the island has long been considered a paradise, attracting visitors from all over the world.

  • Two seasons: Winter and summer
  • Temperatures stay within a pleasant 10-degree average of 21 to 27°C (70-80°F)
  • Winter storms can produce flooding and property damage

Getting There

Lihue Airport is 19.3 km (12 miles) from Koloa and is served by several airlines, including Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta, Hawaiian, Island Air, United and USAir. You may wish to land in Honolulu, in which case you'll need to connect with one of the small commuter airlines to get to Koloa, HI.

Rental cars are the most common way to get from the airport into town. There are also taxis and hotel courtesy shuttles. The Kauai County Bus has service seven days a week. Once in the town, you can walk or bike almost anywhere you wish to go. Still, if you want to explore the surrounding island, you will want to either take a tour or rent a car.

Aging resort on prime land. Needs desperately upgrades and renewals. Rustic atmosphere and mildew can be appealing in an old plantation cottage, but not in an 70s condo. Renovate or tear it down.
