16 Small Towns In Rural Hawaii That Are Downright Delightful

While we love Hawaii’s capital city of Honolulu, as well as the various cities and resort towns that populate the islands’ shores, we are slightly obsessed with the charming small towns that can be found across the islands – from Kauai’s western shores to the southern tip of Hawaii Island. Because we can’t get enough of rural Hawaii, these 16 towns are about as rural as it gets in Hawaii – and are downright delightful.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
