Pepeʻekeo is seven miles north of Hilo, which is where you’ll head when looking for anything other than peace and quiet, as Pepeʻekeo is a small residential community. Hilo is the biggest town on Hawaiʻi Island, so rest assured you’ll find tons of great activities there, from unique museums, artisan boutique shopping, busy farmers’ markets, and so much more. Hilo is also the spot to dine at great restaurants, as well as buy your groceries.
From your beautiful Hāmākua Coast location, there are lots of nature activities to explore. Start with the Onomea Scenic Drive, a four-mile stretch of the old highway which winds past gorgeous Onomea Bay. There’s a short trail to get down to the water from here, though it’s not a great place to swim. This part of Hāmākua is also popular for ziplines, if you’re feeling like a thrill. There are several companies to choose from nearby. Check out the Hawaiʻi Plantation Museum in Papaʻikou, to get a better sense of life here in the sugar plantation days, which have shaped much of our history here in Hawaiʻi. Finally, just enjoy driving up the coast, looking for waterfalls to admire!
