Hippie town - yet stacked with aloha, history and natural beauty IF you know where to look or have a local to show you. Drive slow... people tend to walk and sleep everywhere. Grab a sweet treat at the Tin Shack Bakery, buy some Filthy Farm girl soap at Island Naturals handmade just down the road and hit up Kalapana Cultural Tours if you make it this far to show you around the volcano and waterfalls.

Practically the end of the world for better and for worse! Pahoa located in the Puna region of Hawaii is one of the least developed areas of Hawaii. Big business and building have for the most part stayed away from this small haven because of the looming active volcano. Under Pele's, the Hawaiian fire/volcano goddess, protection this part of Hawaii has become a haven for hippies, artists and alternative communities of all sorts.

You get to see the cauldron most days, though weather can make it less visible. The visitor center has a snack shop and gift shop. If lava is flowing its probably best seen from a helicopter. The days are gone when you could drive up and walk on the crusted lava toward the latest flow.
