The sleepy little towns of Hawi and Kapa'au has a variety of restaurants which boast live hawaiian music and entertainment. There is a large variety of gift shops, boutiques and art galleries. The Big Island Eco Adventure just 1 mile from the cottage, operates the Zipline over the most beautiful valleys the big island has to offer. 5 miles to the end of the road is the breathtaking Pololu Valley Lookout. A 20 minute trail down through lush vegetation to an amazing black sand beach. A couple of miles away at Upolu Airport one can take airplane rides of the region on Wednesdays. There are a couple of places along this stretch to swim or snorkel, Kapa'a Beach Park and Mahukona. On clear days you can see Maui and sometimes the islands of Kaho'olawe and Lana'i. No drive is more beautiful than the Kohala Mountain Road that connects us to Waimea. Don't forget the Saturday market under the banyan tree in Hawi, or the two in Waimea, where you'll always find great food and gifts.
