People & Lifestyle
Aliomanu is a quiet community that is significantly less touristy than most coastal Kauai communities. With many properties within walking distance of the beach, this is island living at its most serene. The rural feel and incomparable openness of Aliomanu means residents enjoy some of Kauai’s most enchanting sunrises and sunsets from the comfort of their own property. Located on the Northeast corner of Kauai, Aliomanu has a great combination of sun and balmy trade winds and is equidistant to Kapa'a Town and Hanalei, so a great locale.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Whaler’s General Store
embodies Aliomanu’s Old Hawaii feel, selling groceries, beach gear, and souvenirs. The family-run Moloa’a Fruit Stand & Juice Bar
is an inviting spot to pick up fresh island produce, along with delicious smoothies, sandwiches, grilled foods, and fruit juices. Bountiful island produce is also available to purchase directly from local farmers each Sunday at the Kalalea Anahola Farmer’s Hui. Kalalea Juice Hale
is a similarly laid-back place to sip cold-brew coffee and fruit juice. Juice Hale also has sublime acai bowls, including its signature coconut cream-topped King Kong. Duane’s Ono-Char Burger
has long been a Aliomanu hotspot, serving a variety of great-tasting burgers, mouth-watering fried shrimp, and delicious milkshakes.
Things to Do
Aliomanu’s oceanfront has some of the area’s quietest beaches. Moloa'a Bay
was the filming site for earlier episodes of the classic TV show Gilligan’s Island. It’s easy to see why the producers picked this pretty stretch of sand, framed by dunes and lush tropical vegetation. Papa’a Bay
is another sandy stretch immortalized on screen, as it was used as a filming site for the Harrison Ford and Anne Heche movie Six Days, Seven Nights. Despite this on-screen appearance and spectacular scenery, Papa’a Bay is one of Kauai’s quietest beaches. The film’s producer Peter Guber loved the setting so much that he built a breathtaking ocean villa on a 174-acre beachfront lot, which was then sold for a record-breaking $28 million in 2009.
In addition, few tourists venture to Aliomanu Beach
, meaning it is almost exclusively used by locals. This beach is known as a great place for beachcombing, it's orientation makes it one of the better spots on Kauai to find Japanese glass fishing floats, a coveted treasure but you best get there early to do so. Anahola Beach
is generally livelier, with an on-duty lifeguard and campfire facilities making this a popular family hangout. Anahola Beach is particularly bustling in March, when the Anahola Prince Kuhio Day Celebration
brings live music and hula performances to its sands.
