There are 2 Island Snows in Kailua and they are both great! The kids love them and no trip to Oahu is complete with a visit or two to Island Snow! The ice cream at the bottom just makes it delicious!

We go to two places for shave ice...the Island Snow here close to our favorite Lanikai Beach, and another in town. The ice is perfect, very fine and melts in your mouth. Some of the newer flavors for me provide delightful Yums.

We have been in the islands for the last 10 days and have tried shave ice at several places, all three of our kids said Island Snow was their favorite!

Great place for shave ice! Be sure to ask for a punch card since you will be back for more! Friendly staff and lots of options for flavors. Shave ice comes with one scoop of ice cream.
