Holualoa

Holualoa ©
Holualoa is a census-designated place (CDP) in Hawai‘i County, Hawai‘i, United States. Discover out-of-the-way places like Waipi'o Valley and Greenwell Farms. Escape the urban bustle at Akaka Falls State Park and Mauna Kea. Change things up with these side-trips from Holualoa: Waimea (Waipio Na'alapa Trail & Mahukona Beach Park), Waipio Valley Lookout (in Honokaa) and Papakōlea Green Sand Beach (in Naalehu). There's lots more to do: paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, stop by Buddha's Cup Coffee Estate, party Hawaiian-style at Royal Kona Resort Luau, and see some colorful creatures with Fair Wind Big Island Ocean Guides.

Plan my Holualoa trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Holualoa is very close to Captain Cook. In February, daily temperatures in Holualoa can reach 81°F, while at night they dip to 69°F. On the 11th (Mon), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive to Kailua-Kona.
