This Tiny Hawaiian Town Is The Perfect Island Getaway

On the Big Island’s Kohala Coast, far away from the resorts in Kailua-Kona and the lava flows in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, is a small town that’s big on charm.

From culturally significant historic sites and family-friendly adventures to the best coffee around, awesome shopping, and phenomenal restaurants, here is (almost) everything you need to know about planning a trip to this beautiful slice of Hawaiian paradise.

That’s it, I’m booking a flight to the Big Island from Oahu and packing my bags to visit this funky little Hawaiian town. Not convinced that Hawi is the place to be? Check out these 12 incredible cities perfect for a weekend getaway!
