Pahoa Town

Pahoa is the closest town to the Bamboo House at Hokule'a Retreat. Here's where you can get groceries and gas, shop for bathing suits and surfboards, get a tattoo or have a meal out!

It's a charming old hippy town with a fascinating history. First it was a rugged sawmill town, then a sugar town and also a crossroads on the old railroad.

Main Street Pahoa has maintained its western style storefronts and wooden boardwalks in 'turn of the century' Victorian style.

There are also a couple of fabulous Farmers Markets

Akebono Farmers Market
Akebono Theatre, Pahoa

Pahoa is a colorful, fun little place to visit.

Aloha, Catherine
