There were lots of art galleries and a few stores, but it was much smaller then I expected. Roads are narrow but there is parking along the roadways.

One of our B&B hosts recommended this stop and we would have any way since enjoy artwork. Shopkeepers were friendly, easy to walk around, most interesting bathroom is to be found when walk thru the pink Inn. Good photo op there. Had some good fish tacos, too.

We stayed at Papa Kona Coffee Farm and drove into Holualoa Village for eats. Especially liked Holuakoa Cafe, offering great vegetarian meals in an outdoor setting that is breathtakingt night.

Nice little town. They've done a good job preserving old buildings and many have plaques explaining their provenance. Slow pace. Nice galleries. Holuakoa restaurant (big green building) excellent place to eat. Worth spending a couple hours at least.

I have been here many times in the past but was really dissappointed this time. Not much was open and what was open wasn't that great. Only 1 or 2 art shops were worth a look.

This was a nice place with a variety of boutique type shops and eateries as well as specialty food shops. I spent several hours on several visits there.

As we were on a mission to acquire Kona coffee (not from the souvenir stores) we made a quick run up to Holualoa Village. Its very quaint, pretty and quirky with colourful locals. We ended up buying coffee from the local hairdresser shop. Its also worth noting that there are some fabulous galleries in town that really make it worth... More

Holualoa Village has a character of it's own. There are art stops and restaurants with their own flair. It is worth a visit if you have the time.

The Holualoa Village is off the main path and it takes a bit of extra effort to reach -- and is worth your time :) There are nice galleries here featuring works by Hawaiian artists, and these are a much better place to acquire nice souvenirs from your Big Island visit (rather than those tourist-oriented shops in town).

Holualoa Village is a must visit for all art lovers. They have a wide range of galleries where you are sure to find art you will want to take home for yourself or as a gift. Be sure to allow enough time to browse all of the galleries!
