We were recommended to drop by this little treasure near Kailua Beach because not only is it one of the best shaved ice places on the island but necause this reputed to be one of Obama's favorite places in Oahu.

Our friends did not lie. The shaved ice is fantastic not only because the flavors are so tasty but because you get a scoop of vanilla ice cream at the bottom. Glorious! The pizza joint next door is also fantastic.

I grew up in Kailua and it's nice that Island Snow has been around for years when so many other businesses have come and gone, awesome shave ice, many flavor choices and add-ons, lines are often long but move quickly, order your sizes and add-ons first, flavors later!

2nd location in Kailua is often not as crowded, definitely a Kailua staple!

Went here since it got in all the news and it was a disappointment, So many other places in Oahu that have better shave ice. Not the best Shave Ice on the Island.
