10 Most Beautiful Small Towns in Hawaii

It’s hard to narrow down a list of ten beautiful towns in Hawaii. To be honest, pretty much every Hawaiian town is beautiful. However, there are some towns that are a little greener, brighter, and prettier than the rest. Check out these Hawaiian small towns and you’ll wish you could pick up and move there immediately!

Oahu’s most beautiful small town is a place worth visiting. Located along the northern shore of Oahu, Haleiwa is home to the beautiful Waialua Bay. This beach is popular for surfers because of its big barrels, but it also has plenty of sun, sandy shores, and cultural activities for everyone else.

Naalehu has the distinction of being the southernmost town in all of the United States. Its population is around 1000, making it big enough to be interesting but small enough to be a small community. The volcanic black sand beaches are a draw for tourists from within Oahu and around the world.

3: Hilo, Hawaii Island

The Big Island has two sides: the Hilo side and the Kona side. Hilo is the more popular of the two as far as vacation destinations go, and it is one of the most gorgeous places in the Pacific. The town of Hilo, located on the Hilo side, of course, has plenty of things to do and see within its borders. Wailuku State Park, Rainbow Falls, and the Boiling Pots are all in the environs of the town. Hilo is also a great place to stay when you’re exploring Hawaii Volcanoes National Park!

Hawi is known as the spot where you turn around during the Ironman World Championship that’s held on the island each year. However, there’s more to do here than just bike (although biking is an awesome activity choice). The main street of the little town is lined with picturesque shops, restaurants, and galleries. Don’t forget to check out the statue of King Kamehameha!

Hanalei sits on the shore of Hanalei Bay, a while sand beach with a green mountain backdrop. This town is popular with surfers, since the waves are often ideal here. Locals love this town as much as the tourists do—it has a strong sense of heritage and features much traditional art and local cuisine.
