    We enjoyed this spot while vacationing in Hawaii. This is a great alternative for seeing the Waipio Valley, since the road to the actual valley is closed to the public. It was somewhat overcast while we were there, but it was STILL beautiful despite the weather. Highly recommend!

    We love chocolate so we thought this might be fun. Seeing the cacao on the trees and then learning how it goes through the process to become a great treat was a very informative experience. Mike taught us a lot about how good chocolate is made, and we now have a new favorite chocolate.

    So amazing…a lovely tour of the farm and our first tea ceremony. It was my 22 yo’s favorite part of our Big Island Hawaii trip!

    I give this five stars because we did a horseback riding trip through the valley. Otherwise it’s a long STEEP hike. Remember what goes down must come up. Or you can very cautiously and slowly drive 4 wheel drive down and not enjoy the view because you are focused on the road. And, at the bottom, it’s mostly private land so you can’t just march over to the falls. Either be prepared for a serious hike, enjoy the falls from the easy to get to lookout (nice place for a picnic), or do a horseback tour.

    We stopped here on our way back from hiking in Waipio Valley. It was a great little market with some booths selling raw fruits and veggies, while others were preparing food to eat on site. There were some picnic tables where we enjoyed a lunch plate along with some pastries from Kaai and Soo-ling Delights which was so delicious. Highly recommend!

    If you've visited many of the better known sights on the Big Island, Kalopa State Park is well worth a visit. The nature trail offers a look into what the island looked like before the Europeans arrived and the trail markers identify the various trees and plants. The size of some of the trees is impressive. If what you're looking for is the "bright lights" this is not the place but we enjoyed our hike and will return to do more hiking in the future.

    Our family was lucky enough to join Susan for a 2 hour beekeeping tour yesterday. I have a 6 and 10 year old and they were so engaged and curious the entire time. You could tell Susan's love for beekeeping and we benefited greatly from learning more about these amazing creatures that keep us humans alive. We have visited several other farm tours while visiting the Big Island and this was by far the best experience!!!
    It's important for us to make sure our kids know where real food comes from and gain perspective of the ecological balance we need (ie: all insects have jobs and purpose that are critical for our survival) and this tour tied a beautiful bow around that mission for us.
    Thank you Susan for sharing your passion and knowledge with us! We will be looking to connect with local beekeepers back at home to continue this wonderful journey into the world of bees!

    This was such a fantastic experience with locals, Wendell and Netta. They were extremely welcoming: we were greeted with coffee and banana muffins, and hugs! They weaved through stories of their experiences harvesting coffee and the challenges they've faced. We saw the beautiful hand crafted pots, lamps, pens, and bowls that Wendell carved. If you want an authentic experience, and you want to help local businesses, don't miss this tour.

    My wife and I drove to experience the Waipi'o Valley Overlook and while doing some research about nearby places of interest , I read about the Heritage Center. It was a low key but very interesting trip into the cultural , ethnic , economic and World War II look into the history of the town of Honokaa.
    The staff was very friendly and helpful and we not only enjoyed our visit , we learned quite a bit. It's not that far from Hilo and the Akaka Falls as well.

    Went here specifically for the glass but was pleasantly surprised to find different artwork, gallery items and beautiful jewelry as well. Sales lady was very nice and knowledgeable. They open early afternoon but stay open until the evening, which is nice. We went on a Monday, and a lot of shops in Honokaa are closed on Mondays, so if you're making this town a destination for all the galleries, etc., may want to try a different day of the week.

    This church located on the Hamakua coast in the tiny town of Honoka’a has recently been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
    The church, built in 1926, in the Late Gothic Revival style, characterized by Gothic-Revival arched openings and a pair of towers flanking a centered projecting enclosed porch all of which is covered with a green corrugated metal roof.
    The interior is a large central, high vaulted ceiling and vaulted side aisles, posts serve as nave piers and support the Gothic archways forming two outside aisles. On the back of the apse is a Gothic arched stained-glass window depicting the crucifixion. Flanking the chancel are statues of the Virgin Mary and Jesus. The choir loft is on a mezzanine over the entrance to the nave.
    To the mauka side of the entrance to the Nave is a donation box, along with crucifix’ for sale for donations.
    On the mauka side of the main parking lot is a small grotto built of rock that houses a statue of the Virgin Mary.
