Pa'auilo used to be a booming sugar town in the past. But when sugar production ceased in this area, the town's character changed. Today, it is a sleepy community with a few small neighborhoods, a grocery store and post office. Down on the ocean one can still see the now abandoned mill site and docks, where the harvested sugar was once loaded for transport.

|They also have the Hawaiian Vanilla Company where you
can have a great lunch and tour of how the vanilla is
made during the week and on Saturdays they serve tea.
It's a great place to visit with family and
Reservations are needed.
be happy you went,they really have the Aloha spirit.
