Groceries and Shopping
About one mile north of Wailau Bay View are a Foodland, Safeway and Long's Drugs (CVS). Foodland has more local items and a great selection of fresh fish and Poke. Safeway has most items you can purchase at any Safeway on the mainland.
Island Country Markets is within walking distance at the Coconut Marketplace. Island Country Markets has many groceries, a cafe, coffee bar, gelato bar and a full alcohol section. It is a new ABC concept store.
Just north of the Safeway complex on the left hand side of Kuhio highway is a health food store called Papaya's Natural Foods and Cafe. They have a great selection even if you don't usually eat health food. For more information check out their web site: PapayasNaturalFoods.com.
In Lihue is a Walmart and a Costco about 15 minutes away from Wailua Bay View. In a pinch, the Shell station next to Wailua Bay View stocks some basic groceries and alcohol. JC's Flowers across the street makes incredible tropical flower arrangements.
