The Hawaii Town In The Middle Of Nowhere That’s So Worth The Journey
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. This little town located on the remote Hamakua Coast of Hawaii Island at nearly 1,000 feet above sea level is one of our favorite rural towns in the state — and you’re going to want to visit.
Have you visited Honoka’a — perhaps on your way to the nearby Waipio Valley? If you loved this historic little town, you’re going to swoon over Makawao.
