Destination guide

Koloa – where Hawaiian heritage meets the ocean

You can feel the Hawaii of old in Koloa. The town is hidden behind groups of scented eucalyptus trees on the gorgeous south coast of Kauai and known for being the spot of the Aloha State's first sugarcane plantation. The wood-faced buildings of that 19th-century growing boom still dot the heritage town center, while ruined remains of sugarcane farms can be explored on the outskirts. The salt-wash of the ocean is another pull. Don the hibiscus garlands and wax down the board – loads of Koloa vacation rentals sit right next to palm-fringed beaches where the surf rolls in.
