A quaint, cliffside village fronting the ocean, Honokaa Town was built in the 1920s and 1930s by Japanese and Chinese workers who quit the nearby plantations to start businesses that supported the sugar economy. The intact historic character of the buildings, bucolic setting, and friendlness of the residents all give visitors a nice reason to stop and stroll. Cool antique shops, a few interesting galleries, and good cafés abound. Most restaurants close by 8 pm. www.honokaa.org.
