Big Island is home to some premier shopping destinations. Most shopping can be found on the Kona and Kohala Coasts surrounding the resorts.
Scattered along the island are charming boutiques featuring locally made clothing, jewelry, art, and other unique finds. One of our favorites is Pueo Boutique where a portion of your purchases goes towards the Hawaii Wildlife Center. They have two locations in Kailua-Kona, one in Banyan Court Mall near the Kailua Pier and the other off of Lunapule Road next to Hon’ls beach. Another favorite is locally-owned Lucky Cat Boutique located in the town of Kealakekua. Lucky Cat focuses on fair-trade, ethically-made, and sustainable clothing, jewelry, and household goods & décor.Visit Website
