A Little About Koloa 

Koloa, a largely residential subdivision found on the eastern coast of Kauai County, is one of the few towns on the Garden Island without a known translation into English. The best available accounts indicate that the community’s name may be related to a striking rock formation in Waikomo stream. Koloa was originally part of the ancient Hawaiian district of Puna, and was not absorbed into Kamehameha’s Kingdom of Hawaii until the late eighteenth century. Koloa holds a special significance for the economy of Hawaii. During the year 1835, Koloa was the location of the first financially successful sugar plantation in the “Sandwich Islands.” After the business model was proven viable by the plantation at Koloa, sugar plantations began to spring up all over the islands and sugar became the dominant force in the Hawaiian economy for several decades. Koloa, which later became a subsidiary of the larger Grove Farm, continues to bear many historical sites and cultural memories associated with the plantation era.

The current town of Koloa encompasses a total of slightly more than one square mile, and includes a population of about two thousand residents. Modern day Koloa includes a number of historic and fascinating communities along the shoreline of Kauai, including the South Shore of Poipu and Koloa Town itself. One of the most beautiful natural attractions of Kauai is located in Koloa and is called the Tree Tunnel. Although it was partially destroyed by hurricanes and tropical storms in the 1990s, the eucalyptus trees that cover Maluhia Road have largely grown back. Koloa is home to the Kola History Center, as well as the Koloa Heritage Trail and the annual Koloa Plantation Days Celebration. Koloa is also home to a number of excellent shopping and dining opportunities along with Waita Reservoir and the ruins of Koloa Plantation.
