Are you a chocolate lover? If so, Lavaloha is the perfect destination for you to visit in Hilo! Lavaloha is a single origin 1,000 acre Hawaiian chocolate farm that has thousands of cacao plants. This farm is perched above the peaceful city of Hilo on the gentle slopes of Mauna Kea. Recharge your ALOHA while you experience the highly informative and interactive guided tour and eat your way through the many decadent chocolates Lavaloha grows, refines, and produces. A few highlights include the refreshing cool weather (thanks to the high elevation), the wealth of specialized knowledge and kindness given by the generous tour guides, and of course the delicious chocolate samples made with aloha. The Lavaloha gift shop contains tons of Hawaiian sourced and handcrafted products for you to choose from and features their various chocolates for purchase. Our favorites include the sea salt dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate with cacao nibs. The Nalani Line is a collaboration of cacao from smaller chocolate farms located across the Big Island. The unique farming environment and soil results in a distinct cacao flavor specific to that region. Mixed and melted together, the Nalani Line is an exclusive taste that truly represents the Big Island. One of our personal highlights was the sunken garden located next to the gift shop parking area. This lush sunken garden is the stunning home for a variety of exotic orchids, fruits, and fragrant Hawaiian flowers. We were not expecting to visit a cacao farm and stumble upon this hidden gem!

Address: 1820 Amauulu Rd, Hilo, HI 96720
