Kapaa
Travel Guide

Kapaa showing a gorge or canyon and general coastal views

Set at the base of Nounou Mountain (aka the Sleeping Giant), Kapaa is a charming little town that will embrace you as part of the community.

One day in Kapaa and you’ll be oozing with peaceful vibes like a local. Like much of the Garden Isle, Kapaa — also known as Old Kapa’a Town — offers various pathways to the wonders of nature: hiking trails, beaches, rivers and kayak tours abound. Stroll around the quaint boutique music and gift shops. Food vans flood the town centre. Take a break from the usual tropical flavours and try the specialty strawberries and cream shave ice.
