This is a cute, artsy town housed in original old Hawaiian building. Interesting blocks to walk & shop. Good cafe and taco place. Most shops closed on Sundays.

Instead of buying faux souvenirs at the tourist spots, you should drive up to Holualoa and check out their wonderful galleries, where local artists display their special creations :)). There’s a spacious parking lot near the south end, and the shops/cafes are reached via an...More

Holualoa Village is a great place to get away for a few hours - especially if it is hot in Kona. Higher elevation means cooler temperatures! Lots of cute artist shops and a great cafe in town.

One of the gallery owners said it's kind of random as to which galleries are open at any time. But the few we went into were full of very nice art. Not at all the amateur level we sort of expected.
