Pictures of Pahoa, Hawaii
Pahoa is a town in Hawaii that has not really stepped out of the sixties convincingly, and I like it that way. If you need to relax, regroup, recharge, and relive just drive on down to Pahoa. It is furthest south place in Puna where you can get gas and groceries and also is voted most likely to succumb to the fires of Pele (Kilauea volcano) should the whim ignite her. Pahoa is the staging area (or at least the pit stop) on your way to discover Lava Trees State Monument (Park), the far eastern cluster of homes called Kapoho, MacKenzie State Park, Pohoiki, the only boat launch and pier in Puna, Kehena (nude) Beach, and of course the recently buried village of Kalapana.
