The Hamakua Coast on the Big Island’s windward side is a lush agricultural area where fertile lands stretch from Mauna Kea’s upcountry slopes toward the vast and beautiful Pacific Ocean.
Renowned for its ongoing agricultural renaissance, this part of the Big Island is home to both small family farms and a number of private and commercial agricultural endeavors. Known for its commitment to the concept of sustainability, the community continually seeks to balance growth and progress with an appropriate respect for the heritage of the 'aina, the land.
Numerous small villages, many with roots in the sugar plantations of the last century, dot the coastline. Ahualoa, Honokaa, Waipio, Kalopa, Paauilo, Paauhau--the musical place names sing of their rich histories. People who make the Hamakua Coast their home value connection to family, land and community.
The best way to get a sense of the incredible diversity of the Hamakua district is to spend time “talking story” with folks who live and work here. One of our knowledgeable Clark Realty agents can guide you through the hidden byways of the Hamakua Coast.
