Fodor's Review

This quaint, clifftop village fronting the ocean was built in the 1920s and 1930s by Japanese and Chinese workers who quit the nearby plantations to start businesses that supported the sugar economy. The intact historic character of the buildings, bucolic setting, and friendlness of the merchants provide a nice reason to stop and stroll. Cool antiques shops, a few interesting galleries, and good cafés abound. Most restaurants close by 8 pm.
