Once a booming agricultural area for pineapple, rice, and sugarcane, Kapa’a offers many historical sights to visit. The Holoholoku Heiau was restored in 1933 and is one of the oldest ceremonial and religious sites of native Hawaiians. The heiau (pronounced “hey-ow”) is part of the Wailua River Reserve and is considered to be the landing spot for the second wave of Tahitians who first came to Hawaii.


Kapa’a has become a mecca of local cuisine in recent years, offering everything from fine dining to an array of unique eateries and food trucks. There’s truly something for everyone! If you’re looking for fresh local food, you’ll find many restaurants source their ingredients from the myriad of nearby local farms. Kauai Juice Company is a good place to start your day start your day with a cold pressed juice made from 80% Hawaiian grown and/or organic ingredients.
