Cruise Kauai Store carries high-fashion swimwear and resort wear from world-renowned designers. With swimsuits, cover-ups and much more, the store has everything you need to look good while on vacation.

The store has women’s swimsuits from several well-known designers, but the most touted pieces are Letarte’s work. Letarte is an island-based designer who draws inspiration from the seas and tropics. Many Hollywood celebrities have worn her swimsuits, and they’ve appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated multiple times. At the store, you can pick up one of her latest styles.

Some of Cruise Kauai Store’s other well-known swimsuit designers include labels such as Betsy Johnson, Gottex, La Blanca, Trina Turk, and Seafolly. These brands come from Hawaii and from abroad, but they all carry the same fun island spirit that people fall in love with here.

Accompanying the extensive swimwear choices are smaller selections of resort clothing, handbags, hats, shoes, belts, jewelry, and other accessories. From the flip-flops to the floppy sunhat (and especially in between where your swimsuit is), Cruise Kauai Store has you fully covered.

Prices here aren’t the cheapest you’ll find on the island, but few stores carry such accomplished designers. For a truly fashionable swimsuit, Cruise Kauai Store is the only place to look.

A few of our favorite items at Cruise Kauai Store include:

Letarte Swimsuit
The swimsuit of Hollywood celebrities, Sports Illustrated swimsuit models, good-looking vacationers and now you. Letarte has captured the imaginations of beachgoers and pool loungers throughout the islands and the world. You’ll find lots of cuts, colors, and coordinated two-pieces, and more than a few are sure to capture your attention.

Other Designer Swimsuit
If you aren’t feeling the Letarte designs for whatever reason, there’s no shortage of other high-fashion swimsuit designers to look at. Gottex is known for its sharp-looking one-pieces, which are more modest yet still capture others’ attention. Trina Turk uses lots of bright colors and bold patterns, and Vix tends to use a little less fabric. Seafolly, Betsy Johnson, and La Blanca are also all classy designers, and you’re sure to be happy no matter whose swimsuit you end up getting.

Cover-Up
Once you’ve chosen a swimsuit, look for a coordinated cover-up. The designers often have several that match their swimsuits, or you can go with another designer’s look for a mix-and-match style. Regardless of what style you ultimately want, the cover-up is also an essentially practical piece when you’re on Hawaii’s sunny beaches.

Flip-Flops and Hat
Finish off your outfit with a matching hat and flip-flops. Most of the hats and flip-flops are made by other designers, but you’ll be able to find colors that are on swimsuits, cover-ups, hats, and flip-flops. Many pieces have similarly tropical colorations.

Jewelry
Looking for a gift and don’t know their size? Skip the clothing and instead opt for jewelry. Earrings and necklaces are always safe gifts, and there are several Kauai artists with pieces at Cruise Kauai Store. Something that’s both beautiful and local will surely make a good gift.
