Hawi is a quaint little town located at the north tip of The Big Island, just fifty miles from the Kona Airport and 75 miles from Hilo. Twenty miles over the nearby National Scenic Highways "Mountain Road," takes you to the old ranch town of Waimea. Hawi is considered the principle town of the North Kohala region, and was once a thriving center of Hawaiian culture and population, surrounded by bustling sugar plantations. Today Hawi, and its' neighboring towns of Kapaau and Makapala have become a haven for artists, retirees and those seeking an alternative to the busy lifestyle of other Big Island resort cities. Hawi is known for its' beautiful village green and unique restaurants, including one that features island cuisine in a tropical setting - considered by many to be the best restaurant on the island. You will also find craft shops and galleries, a very good coffee/ice cream shop, natural food store, country grocery store and a post office in town. The lovely black sand beach of Pololu Valley is just 15 minutes away, and the white sand beach at Mauna Kea Resort is 25 minutes away. Other activities in or nearby Hawi include hiking, kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving and whale watching (January - March.) A Farmers Market is held every Saturday under the Banyan Tree that features Hawi grown organic produce.

Hawi Weather & Climate

The North Kohala Coast on the northern tip of The Big Island has a climate similar to the wet windward (or eastern) side of the island. This means rain and wind storms are more frequent during Hawaii's winter months, November through April (although they generally clear up within 24 hours.) Unlike temperature, Hawaii's rainfall varies tremendously according to location and altitude. The most rain usually occurs at moderate elevations on the east sides of the islands due to moisture-laden ocean tradewinds. Thunderstorms are also possible on the Kohala Coast in the summertime. Even the warmest summer days are kept comfortable with the blowing trade winds. The average air temperature ranges from 74 to 88 degrees with moderate humidity of around 53 percent during the day.
