There are no oversized, multi-level malls on Kauai. But this Hawaiian island, despite its small size, has several retail areas and boutiques where you can find travel essentials and one-of-a-kind items. The Shops at Kukuiula is the island’s newest shopping and dining area. It has more than 25 restaurants, shops and art galleries, plus a farmers’ market every Wednesday night. Kinipopo Shopping Village on the island’s Coconut Coast (east side) offers a small mix of boutiques and restaurants; while Poipu Shopping Village is near Poipu hotels and condos and offers a variety of eateries and shops selling apparel, jewelry and swimwear. Kapaa and Eleele shopping centers are where the locals shop, with hardware shops, grocery stores, laundry services, banks and restaurants.
