Pahoa is a quaint little town on the southeastern side of The Big Island of Hawaii. This is in the lush, green Puna region of the island, where there are less tourist trappings and more of the "old" Hawaii of yesteryear. Pahoa has wooden sidewalks and storefronts dating back 100 years, and is a town time seems to have forgotten. Tourists are delighted with Pahoa's fine restaurants, including Thai, Mexican, Chinese and Tuscany Italian - some of the best on the island! There are funky little shops and restaurants, a Sunday farmer's market featuring live music and fresh local fruits and vegetables, and Pahoa is home to the Akebono Theater, which is the oldest in the state! The village of Pahoa is situated in the middle of some of the most beautiful, tropical surroundings, near Kehena Beach which has snorkeling, swimming, surfing and beachcombing. There are lots of unbelievably beautiful crystal clear tide pools to explore and a thermal "hot" pond. Pahoa makes a great Hawaiian getaway, far from the crowds, yet within easy reach of attractions such as Lava Trees State Monument Park, the city of Hilo and a scenic drive to the Kailua-Kona area on the other side of the island.

Pahoa Weather & Climate

The southeastern portion of The Big Island has two seasons - winter and summer, but conditions are pretty similar year-round. Winter is slightly cooler and wetter, but Hawaii does not have the extremes of cold winters or summer heat waves. The east side of all of the Hawaiian Islands is wetter due to exposure to the prevailing northeast tradewinds, which bring rain to the eastern shores. Individual islands do have slight variations, however. The official rainy season starts in November, but showers tend to happen late in the evening and don't interfere with outdoor plans. Visitors will find more variation in temperature due to altitude rather than season. Evenings are generally cool and mild year round on The Big Island.
