Welcome to Kalaheo
Kalaheo’s real estate consists of cute single-family homes and peaceful upcountry ranches, and properties are more affordable here than in many Kauai communities. However, residents still get that paradise feel, with a gorgeously green tropical landscape and idyllic distant ocean views.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Kalaheo Steak and Ribs is a popular neighborhood restaurant with signature meat dishes, pasta, and seafood. Brick Oven Pizza is another decades-old Kalaheo tradition, famed for its fabulous Super Pizza. Delicious deep-dish Hawaiian pies are another must-try at The Right Slice’s Kalaheo location.
For fresh island produce, head to the Kalaheo Sunshine Market each Tuesday afternoon all year round.
Things to DoKalaheo has a uniquely homely feel among Kauai communities, with its low-key attractions frequented much more by local residents than vacationing tourists. The 9-hole Kukuiolono Park & Golf Course is a local favorite, with low prices and exceptional mountain views from its Toya Shirai-designed greens.
The serene Lawai International Center features 88 Japanese-style shrines dotted along a blissfully peaceful hillside hike. Each August, visitors to the Pilgrimage of Compassion move through the Lawai Center’s tranquil valley setting to experience a unique spiritual trek.
In terms of family-friendly outings, Kalawi Park is a wonderful choice. There is a wide swath of open space, picnic areas, and a children’s playground, something for everyone to enjoy.
