Wailua Shave Ice – Ocean Beach

Wailua Shave Ice

Finally!  Wailua Shave Ice is open in Ocean Beach.  🙂

We’ve actually been stalking them a bit since first visiting them in Kauai a few months ago.

You see they specialize in shave ice that’s all natural and made with fresh fruit!


They share a co-op space with OB Beans Coffee Roasters which is kind of cool.

Wailua Shave Ice

Here we go… Coconut x Coconut x Coconut and a Lava Flow


Coconut x 3: Coconut Milk, Haupia Foam & Roasted Coconut Flakes!

This one was to die for in Kauai!

It was still wonderful here, but not quite as much syrup.


Lava Flow: Pineapple Juice, Coconut Foam, Strawberry Puree, Pineapple & Strawberry Fruit Topping!!

This was also delicious, although I didn’t eat that much since my kids devoured most of it before I could jump in.  😉

Final Thoughts

If you’ve never had authentic Hawaiian Shave Ice, you gotta check these guys out.

Wailua Shave Ice is the perfect stop on a hot summer day.

We’ll definitely be back.  Enjoy!

  1. The shave ice looks really good! The ice looks so fine. Was it messy to eat?

    My family and I were here earlier this month but for the coffee place. Wailua wasn’t open yet.
