Holualoa Village is a great place to get away for a few hours - especially if it is hot in Kona. Higher elevation means cooler temperatures! Lots of cute artist shops and a great cafe in town.

One of the gallery owners said it's kind of random as to which galleries are open at any time. But the few we went into were full of very nice art. Not at all the amateur level we sort of expected.

We enjoyed our excursion to this unique little town. The art galleries were beautiful and the shop owners so friendly. We especially enjoyed chatting with the owner of the ukulele shop.

We loved our visit to the village. We particularly enjoyed Shelley Maudsley's gallery. Her paintings are so vibrant and stunning. She was very friendly to us and clearly enjoys talking about her art and processes.

A quiet little artist colony, shops offer all kinds of art with a wide appeal. Make a morning or afternoon of it and find everything from handmade glass jewelry to paintings for your walls.

This was once a little Japanese village along the road, now filled with art galleries and boutiques. Fun art and jewelry to see.
