Pahoa Village is a quaint little town on the southeastern side of The Big Island of Hawaii. This is in the lush, green Puna region of the island, where there are fewer tourist traps and more of the “old” Hawaii of yesteryear. Pahoa has wooden sidewalks and storefronts dating back 100 years, and is a town time seems to have forgotten. Tourists are delighted with Pahoa's fine restaurants, including Thai, Mexican, Chinese and Tuscany Italian... some of the best on the island! There are funky little shops and restaurants, a Sunday farmer's market featuring live music and fresh local fruits and vegetables. And Pahoa is home to the Akebono Theater, which is the oldest in the state! The village of Pahoa is situated in the middle of some of the most beautiful, tropical surroundings, near Kehena Beach which has snorkeling, swimming, surfing and beachcombing. There are lots of unbelievably beautiful crystal clear tide pools to explore and a thermal “hot” pond. Pahoa makes a great Hawaiian getaway, far from the crowds, yet within easy reach of attractions such as Lava Trees State Monument Park, the city of Hilo and a scenic drive to the Kailua-Kona area on the other side of the island.
