In our opinion Puna is the most fascinating and lush area of Big Island. From Kalapana to Kopoho, from the Red Road to Pahoa--you will be experiencing the variety of living in a tropical rainforest. This is the most eastern part of the Hawaiian Islands and has a special place in Hawaiian lore. It attracts all those who are adventurous, seeking to expand their spirit, and want to live in congruence with nature. It is our belief that there is a greater percentage of mindful people who live here.
The only public transport is the Hele bus which comes through Leilani and from and to Pahoa and Hilo.
