I honestly don’t understand why this place was so packed when there’s a truly amazing place right around the corner at the Courtyard Marriott. Ululani’s was closed and we took the risk of trying something merging different. While standing in line we noticed that the...More

We visited this shop SEVERAL times while in Kona. Each time had a different combo flavor of shave ice and was never disappointed. Enjoyed it outside sitting on the lava rock ledge while watching the surf crash against the wall across Ali’i Drive. Great memory!

The most amazing part was THEY HAVE DOLE SOFT SERVE! They will put it inside your shave ice! Incredible! So I got vanilla and passion fruit syrups and it was perfect! Go check it out!
