Fodor's Review

About 16 miles east of Naalehu, beyond Punaluu Beach Park, Highway 11 passes directly by this little town. You'll miss it if you blink. Pahala, once a booming sugar plantation company town, is sleepy today but still inhabited by retired cane workers and their descendants. Behind it, along a wide, paved cane road, is Wood Valley, once a prosperous community, now just a peaceful road heavily scented by eucalyptus trees, coffee blossoms, and night-blooming jasmine and often laden in mist.
