Life slows down a bit in Pahoa---but that’s how locals (and vacation rental guests) like it. This little corner of the Big Island is surrounded by natural beauty; from the Puna Forest Reserve to the Nanawale Reserve, lush tropical beauty surrounds you here. Ancient lava flows pave the forest floor of Lava Tree State Monument---it’s a unique natural sight you have to experience for yourself. If you’re more inclined to spend your time in the waves, the Kapoho tidepools create a snorkeler’s heaven. Don’t miss the out on the gorgeous black sand beach of Kehena, either.
In town, Pahoa offers plenty of local dining to satisfy every vacation rental guest’s palate. Be sure to try to island flavors of Nicoco Hawaiian Gelato and Pele’s Kitchen! Keeau, about 10 miles to your north, has tons of dining and shopping options, too, as well as the ever-popular Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Farm. It’s all at your doorstep when you stay at a Pahoa vacation rental.
