Fodor's Review

This quaint, cliff-top 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 historical character of the buildings, bucolic setting, and friendliness of the merchants provide a nice reason to stop and stroll. Cool antiques shops, a few interesting galleries, funky gift shops, and good caf├ęs abound. There's even a vintage theater that often showcases first-rate entertainment. Most restaurants close by 8 pm.
