Where you’ll be

Holualoa, Hawaii, United States

Java is the juice that powers Holualoa, the little village and art enclave in the heart of Kona coffee country. This is a great place to taste the rich flavors of 100% pure Kona coffee, a rare commodity exclusively grown in north and south Kona. There are many great restaurants within just a few miles such as Rebel Kitchen, Magics Grill and Kaya's.

The high elevation, constant cloud coverage, and rich volcanic soil in the upland slopes of Kona, Holualoa and Kealakekua create an ideal environment for harvesting the unique Kona coffee bean. There are roughly 600 coffee farms in the Kona area and many offer tours to the public. Visit Holualoa’s thriving coffee orchards and learn about the meticulous harvesting process. Then explore the coffee mill and see how the beans are processed. As you finish your tour, sip a freshly brewed cup for yourself and experience the rich aroma and flavor that makes 100% Kona coffee so highly valued.

Tucked amid the upland farms on the slopes of dormant Hualalai Volcano between Kailua-Kona and Keauhou, Holualoa has also become art central for the Kona and the Kohala Coast resort areas. Discover local artwork including paintings, ceramic sculptures and handcrafted woodwork. To experience the best of both worlds, visit during the annual Holualoa Village Coffee & Art Stroll in November. Taste exotic Kona coffee blends while you shop for handcrafted goods and meet local farmers and artists. Then make room in your suitcase to take home a bag of Holualoa’s best beans for your trip home.

A Brief History of Holualoa
The origins of Holualoa as an established center begins with the fertile soil and high amounts of rainfall that made agriculture a valuable industry in the area. Coffee, something that Holualoa is well-known for, was first planted in 1828 and remained one of the town’s industries. Beyond coffee, fields of sugar cane were also planted in Holualoa. Many historic buildings from this point in time still exist today as monuments, with interpretive signs to help you learn more about the town’s rich history.

The town of Holualoa is often referred to as an artist’s enclave, which means that there is no shortage of art and culture to experience in this small yet mighty town.

Just a short 7 minute drive from Aolani House, Holualoa is also a vibrant town with constant celebrations and lively community events for whatever occasion you can imagine. One event that showcases Holualoa’s culture is the First Friday After Dark, which includes art, music, food, and cultural activities to celebrate on a regular basis. This occurs on the first Friday evening of every month. And of course, the town’s emphasis on coffee can’t be ignored; the Coffee and Art Stroll is the town’s annual celebration of Kona coffee and local art in the fall. The galleries along Mamalahoa Highway, which is the main road through town, contains some fine art, including handmade woodwork and jewelry, sculptures and posters. Standouts include Dovetail Gallery, Studio 7 Fine Arts, and Glyph Art Gallery. The famous and unique Holualoa Ukulele Gallery has some stunning examples of Hawaii’s four-stringed instrument which is created by great ukulele makers. The visitors can play a few bars, chat with the owner and maybe even participate in a ukulele – building workshop.

Beyond the town center are many small farms, nestled on the slopes of Mount Hualalai. Many of these small farms would be happy to have you and your family along for a tour to explore the process of farming on the Big Island or how coffee is farmed and roasted, a real farm-to-cup experience!

Holualoa’s climate is generally thought to be quite comfortable and slightly lower than average in terms of precipitation and the most pleasant in terms of heat and humidity from February to March. The area is hottest July through October.

Fun fact: Holualoa got its name from the ancient Hawaiian practice of sledding the long (loa) mountain slopes with wooden sleds (holua).
