Worth a visit. Lots of cute little shops with local artists. All, one-of-a-kind types of stores. I got some delicious lilikoi (sp?) butter, an ankle bracelet. They have cool gourd art to. Be sure to eat at the Holualoa cafe and garden.

Holualoa is a really trendy, eclectic, fun place to toodle around. Mostly local art galleries and new, trendy things. Most things are expensive here, because they are one of a kind. There are some nice, local jewelry designers with some decent prices on some of the jewelry. This is a good place to find gifts that are locally made, and... More

Old Coffee-land town nestled in the hills above Kailua-Kona. Small post office and ukulele store are most interesting. Holualoa Cafe has excellent food and atmosphere in an outdoor setting.

Just such a quaint area of the Big Island. Love stopping at the fruit stands and buying fruit that has just been picked that morning. I the Village itself so many unique shops, restaurants, coffee spots, endless things to browse through. A must stop on a trip to Kona

Love this little town where the clouds just begin to caress the slopes of Hualalai. Step back into Hawaii of 60 years ago.

Just a few minutes up the mountain from downtown Kona -- but seemingly a completely different world away -- is the laid back village of Holualoa, home to excellent art galleries, a couple of tasty eateries (+ a good coffee shop, serving yummy brews made with local Kona beans), and friendly folks :)) Artists' wares are on display in the...

It had been years since visiting this sleepy little village. I used to attend art classes in a co-op here. I returned last week with my daughter who doesn't remember ever being in Holualoa. She's a city girl now, living in Honolulu, and was taken by the history of the architecture, the lush beauty, and the pace of the environment.... More

What a great area to see local artisan's galleries and shops. First Friday the galleries are open in the evening with live music and street food. For finer dining, Holuakoa Cafe is a great sit-down restaurant right in the heart of the village.

We always make at least a couple of trips up to Holualoa. The little store on the corner of Hualalai and the highway called Kimura Lauhala shop is delightful. The ladies who run it are sweet and love to share the history of the area. They sell woven hats as well as many other local handmade items like wallets and... More
