The beauty of this picturesque and quaint little village is incredible!! You should absolutely take the time to drive out to see all the flower and little shops and check out the ocean views!

Holualoa - Quaint, Cute, Quite Enjoyable
Oct 2020
This artist colony has been hit hard by the lack of tourist trade. The shops are fun and offer a wide range of items from very upscale art to tourist tchotchkes. It's quaint and enjoyable, a relaxed village to stroll. Many shops were closed when we visited owing to the pandemic, but the ones that were opened offered a very satisfying time.

Artsy community with genuine Island handicrafts :))
Dec 2020 • Couples
Rather than picking up faux imported “souvenirs” at the touristy shops, why not head up the mountain to Holualoa and acquire locally made art items to bring home instead? We really enjoy visiting the galleries — the Dovetail is our favorite, and our home is adorned with many pieces from here — plus getting a bite to eat as well (note that the Holuakoa Gardens Restaurant & Cafe is currently closed). Plus the higher elevation offers a cool respite if it’s too hot down in Kona as well... enjoy this charming community!

Komo Store
Aug 2019 • Family
We were visiting the store on their last week before their closing. Mr. Komo said that they would continue to sell their coffee. During Covid19, we decided we needed to relive our great time on the Big Island. We ordered coffee beans from Komo Estate to be sent to our home. Coffee did not disappoint! So if you feel need a little Aloha escape this did it for us!

Fun Place to Look Around
Feb 2020
This is a fun area to spend an hour or two. Many shops and art galleries. The quality of much of the work is outstanding. Shop keepers are nice and helpful. Be sure to visit Wish Keeper & Gourds and ask how they do the designs it really was amazing.

Untapped Potential...
Jan 2020 • Couples
This little village has potential, and is worth a quick stop. There’s a small gravel parking lot (free) with an outhouse at one end of town. When my husband and I wandered through on a Wednesday afternoon, finding open shops was hit or miss. We enjoyed most of the ones we stopped in, and had fun chatting with the artisans. We preferred the small jewelry shops as some of the larger shops were quite pricey.

I found some unique earrings at a reasonable price ($30-35). Entire village stroll took about an hour. There’s a cute restaurant that a local recommended at night, but we did not stay that long to check it out inside.

It would be cool for visitors if the area was a bit more pedestrian friendly, more consistent shop openings, spaces to sit in shade, and a few more food/drink options. Still, worth a look.

Delightful place to enjoy locally made artwork, definitely worth checking out :))
Jan 2020 • Couples
Up the mountain from Kona is found the very scenic and quaint village of Holualoa, where you can peruse lovely arts and crafts made by local folks :)). There’s a nice array of delightful galleries, along with an excellent coffee shop, classy restaurant, and a yummy Mexican cafe as well... one of our favorite places is the Dovetail Gallery, which features beautiful pieces made of wood, ceramics, and other media (plus super friendly owners and their pup too). Why bring home a faux souvenir from those tacky gift shops, when you can acquire an authentic piece made by a Hawaiian artist? (Also, if the temperature is too hot down in Kona town, you’ll find things to be considerably cooler up here in Holualoa.). Enjoy!

Galleries stay open; food vendors, live music. Fun way to spend a few hours to see the extraordinary work of local artists.

Cool trade breezes

Lots of little shop's with fantastic selection of original art from program's to colorful painted/stained gourds. Lot's of eye candy but bring lots of credit cards.
