Holualoa on the Big Island is a historic village in the heart of Kona's Coffee Country with years of heritage as a fertile, coffee growing region. With a strong artist community, it's known for its annual celebration of coffee and art, called the Coffee & Art Stroll, plus for its numerous boutique art galleries and local shops.
Find out more about the coffee growing, roasting, and the producing process with a tour of the many small farms and orchards that dominate the slopes of Mt. Hualalai volcano around the village of Holualoa.
The Pulama 'Ia Kona Heritage Preservation Council has ensured that the old buildings in Holualoa still retain their original signage, and you can walk around the town keeping your eyes peeled to see these signs on various shops, the churches and schools.
This is a place to relax, unwind and enjoy soaking up the small town, bohemian charm of this place where art and coffee combine with a warm, friendly community.
The best time to visit is in November for the fun of the coffee and art festival, or the annual Holualoa Music and Light Festival in December.
