Sweet general store with friendly staff. Many trinkets from the sea. Nice stop with clean restrooms. Be sure to hold down the handle. Takes cash.

On our drive to Hana the Kaupo General Store was one of our spots we were looking forward to seeing. Just a small store but in a beautiful location. Worth the stop.
