The Gateway to the Hāmākua Coast, Honokaa is a city on the Big Island where you can enjoy the historic sites of the town, which is the best place to stay for venturing further afield to explore the Waipio Valley, the Waiamanu Valley, and Hiilawae Falls.
Wander along Main Street for shops, restaurants, and local historic treasures like the Honoka'a' People's Theater -- the largest theater on Hawaii. Get a feel of the rest of the island with a trip to Waipoio Valley to take in the sheer beauty of this awe-inspiring natural landscape. Waterfalls, cliffs, flowers, beaches, and the magnificence of the valley is hard to describe. See Hiilaawe Falls, one of the tallest and most powerful waterfalls in Hawaii. Equally stunning is the more remote Waimanu Valley and of course the incredible coastline here with its blue horizons, lush rain forests, and endless vistas makes a fabulous, fairytale drive.
Avoid the rain and visit from the months of April to October
