Hanapepe Town

Flourishing as one of Kauai’s largest communities, Hanapepe Town sits on the south shore. From World War I to the early 1950s, the west side of Hanapepe was known as one of Kauai’s busiest towns and filled with soldiers.

Today, the preservation of the historical buildings and authentic feel that the town oozes resulted in inspiration for films. Disney used Hanapepe as a model for “Lilo & Stitch.”  The plantation-style buildings are home to charming shops, local eateries and more art galleries than any other spot on Kauai.

It’s especially popular with children.
