Helping you make the most of your stay.

Pāpālua Shave Ice

Generally open from 11AM to 5PM (hours vary seasonally), Pāpālua Shave Ice serves up the classic Hawai’i treat with all the extras.  This popular kiosk, right in the middle of the pool complex, does nothing but shave ice.  It’s very popular, so be prepared for long lines on hot days and wear something on your feet when you go as the ground gets really hot. 

First you decide on which version you want to order, then you choose your flavors.

You have four versions plus one final add-on to choose from:

The ‘ekahi (Hawaiian for “one,” pronounced eh-kaa-hee) is your basic shave ice topped with syrup. 

‘Elua (“two,” eh-loo-ah) adds on sweetened condensed milk poured on top. 

‘Ekolu (“three,” eh-co-loo) is a basic shave ice plus a scoop of vanilla ice cream under the shave ice.

Finally, the ‘Eha (“four,” eh-haa) is all the others put together, shave ice with ice cream and sweetened condensed milk.

The final add-on is Mickey ears, little shave ice hockey-pucks stuck on each side before the syrup.  This can be added to any of the versions.

Available flavors are Lychee, Guava, Watermelon, Cherry, Li-Hing Mui, Strawberry, Orange, Liliko’i, Mango, Pineapple, Banana, Green Tea, Lemon Lime, Vanilla, Grape, Root Beer, and Haupia.
