Big Island Sights

Pahoa Town

Updated 01/06/2014

Fodor's Review

This eclectic little town is reminiscent of the Wild West, with its wooden boardwalks and vintage buildings—not to mention a reputation as a pot growers' haven. A throwback to the '60s, and '70s, it attracts plenty of hippies, gurus, wwoofers (workers on organic farms), yoga students, and other colorful characters pursuing alternative lifestyles. Secondhand stores, tie-dye/hemp clothing boutiques, smoke shops, and art galleries add to the "trippy" experience. Pahoa's

main street boasts a handful of local-style eateries. To get here, turn southeast onto Highway 130 at Keaau, and drive 11 miles to a marked right turn.
