Shave ice is a staple Hawaiian treat. With so many different combinations of syrup flavors and toppings, guests can enjoy shave ice every day of their vacation and never repeat a combination. When wandering around the island, be sure to stop by one of the many shave ice stands or stores to cool down while enjoying a sweet treat.
