Best of Pahoa Guide

Print this guide 
Tiny Pahoa is Hawaii's alternative to a glitzy, prepackaged vacation experience. A small, Victorian town with wooden boardwalks, Pahoa has been called the "downtown" of the Puna region of the Big Island. Travelers will find abundant natural beauty combined with a laid-back, artistic atmosphere.
