Honokaa, Hawaii

Small town, big aloha sums Honokaa up perfectly. Located on the beautiful Hamakua Coast of the Big Island, Honokaa boasts a rustic plantation quality ambiance with nationally registered historic homes and buildings and a main street full of welcoming shops and quaint places to enjoy a meal or sweet treat.

This gateway town to the famous Waipio Valley was once the third largest city in all of the Hawaiian Islands and Honokaa was known as a significant player in solidifying the economy of Hawaii by mass-producing and exporting sugarcane for many years. As the Hawaii sugarcane industry dwindled, Honokaa changed gears and became the first to introduce macadamia nuts to the world.

The diversity of the people, its beautiful historic buildings, and the endless feeling of aloha is what makes Honokaa a visitor's paradise.
