The quaint town of Hawi is situated to the west of the community of Kapaau. Together they comprise the most densely populated region in the district of North Kohala. Historically this part of Kohala is significant as the birthplace of Kamehameha I and the location of the Moʻokini heiau in theKohala Historical Sites State Monument. The two communities were once busy commercial centers during the operation of the Kohala Sugarplantation.

Hawi is the turnaround point for the Ironman World Championship Triathlon. It is the northernmost point on the bicycle leg, where athletes return to the finish line at Kamakahonu in Kailua-Kona. When the weather is good, you will not  find a more breathtaking place, with expansive views of Maui. The homes range from coffee shacks, to large ranches and estate homes.
