A fun place for a stroll, this little town is reminiscent of the Wild West, with its wooden boardwalks and vintage buildings—not to mention a reputation as a pot-growers' haven. A throwback to the '60s, it attracts plenty of hippies and other colorful characters pursuing alternative lifestyles. The secondhand stores, tie-dye clothing boutiques, and art galleries add to the "trippy" experience. Pahoa's main street boasts a handful of island eateries, the best of which is Luquin's Mexican Restaurant.
