Koloa Landing information
Koloa Landing, at the mouth of Waikomo Stream, was once Kauaʻi's largest port. Nineteenth-century farmers used it to ship Kauaʻi-grown sugar, oranges and sweet potatoes from here. It was the third-busiest whaling port among the Hawaiian Islands, surpassed only by Honolulu and Lahaina, Maui.
The landing waned after the road system was built; it was abandoned in the 1920s. Today only a small boat ramp remains. Underwater, it's another story: Koloa Landing is popular for snorkeling and it's also the best shore-diving spot on the South Shore. Its protected waters reach depths of about 30ft and it's generally calm all year. See underwater tunnels, a variety of coral and fish, sea turtles and monk seals await.
