We stopped in to the little Shopping Centre in Holualoa Village to get a bite to eat. We needed directions and we were quite weary since we had recently arrived from Vancouver Canada. The cafe owner was extremely helpful and friendly.

The Holualoa Heritage Trail is a short drive into the upper level of the Kona area. Holualoa Village is part of that and a great stop. The Keauhou Store is part museum and part store with a rich Japanese history. It also serve great lunches and cookies. What a treat.

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...
