Koloa, also known as Old Koloa Town, is a fast growing tourist destination located 12 miles (19.3 km) from Lihue and 3 (4.8 km) miles from Poipu. In 1835, King Kamehameha III leased the land to Ladd and Company, which made Koloa the first sugar plantation town in Hawaii.
A visit to the Koloa History Center and a tour of the nearby Koloa Heritage Trail will give you an insight into the sugar industry. Here you can also see the remains of an old sugar mill.
