Waimea Travel Guide

Waimea is a unique place on the island of Hawaii with cowboy (paniolo) country, a historic region of pastures where cattle, ranches and cowboys still prevail. Inland from the Kohala Coast, Waimea is also now a busy, dynamic community with rich local culture, food and entertainment.

Things to Do in Waimea

Cowboys and rodeos are big attractions in Waimea, which is also an incredibly scenic, beautiful destination. Visit the Parker Ranch or the Anna Ranch to learn more about the history of Hawaiin cowboys. You can tour the historic houses and learn about life back then on the ranch, plus there are horseback riding tours.

Waimea is also close to some excellent beaches and incredible footpaths in the neighboring Waipi’o valley with miles of trails, incredible vistas, and black sand beaches. Stargazing is also wonderful here in the dark with tons clear skies above the island.

Plenty of farmers markets, boutique stores and restaurants also make Waimea a charming place to visit. There is also a fine arts museum and the Paniolo Heritage Center, houses inside the former stables, Pukalani Stables.

Waimea makes a great base for exploring the incredible beaches of the Kohala Coast and the rest of the island.

Best Time to Visit Waimea

April and June make for good months to visit the big island, as there are less crowds and not as many tropical storms.
