Located near Kalapana, this is the perfect place to pitch a tent. Tracy, the host, has built a lovely home away from home on his land. There is a platform for your tent, a fire pit, a propane bbq, flushable toilet and a serene and private outdoor shower.
There are so many trees to pick fruit from: noni, papayas, bananas, mangos and coconuts! There is even a little sour sap tree grove. Tracy is a landscape designer so you can imagine how much care, intent and thought he put in behind every plant.
Down the road, there is Uncle Robert's Awa Bar where you can grab a drink and dinner. There is also a great Farmer's Market every Wednesday night and a LIVE MUSIC! There is also a corner store where you can get many food staples to cook.
Across the way there is a lava sand beach, which is a short walk to the coast. What is really spectacular is to drive to the lava viewing area in Kalapana. You'll park in a designated parking lot and can either get a shuttle or ride a bike to the lava. Best to go at night and see all the stars and the giant sky. You'll be able to see live lava.
Issac Hale Beach Park is just 25 min drive away as well so there are so many activities to choose from. Tracy was so accommodating and friendly, cannot wait to visit again!
Searching the www for a nice place close to the lava viewing area I came across the Ewa-Wava farm. After my visit I can say it is a pity that I spent only one night there! It is about a mile to the parking lot/bicycle rentals for the lava viewing – so it was the perfect location to see the lava at different times of the day (sunset/night/sunrise). Despite this short distance to the touristic hot spot the campsite lies in the middle of a green jungle with plenty different kinds of tropic fruit plants, flowers and big trees. All anemities are connected with lovely created trails, the highlight is the (hot) shower under the umbrella of a huge Monkeypod tree! It is a quiet, peaceful place, the only noises you can hear come from nature (weaves from the nearby blacksand beach, frogs, birds) and it is a private camp, there is only one longtime camper and one campsite for guests. Over all stands the host John Tracy who gives the Ewa-Wava farm its special touch. From the booking to the goodbye, Tracy takes care of you like he takes care for his peace of paradise! When he guided me through his jungle garden (including a hidden lava tunnel) you can see and feel with how much enthusiasm and cordiality Tracy looks for the place and his guests – any time again!
I recently camped here while on a solo bike tour of the Big Island. It was a lovely place to stay and John made sure I had everything I needed to make my stay comfortable. Prior to arriving, he provided me with all of the necessary details about the location and met me in person the next morning. When I arrived John had prepared a lovely selection of fruit (papaya, passionfruit, avocado, etc, etc.) for me to enjoy. I spent the afternoon eating fruit, watching geckos, and eventually made my way to the nearby lava flow. In the morning, I had coffee down the road at a local cafe in Kalapana. There is also a restaurant but I didn't get a chance to eat there.
This was definitely a highlight of my trip. If you're in the area, I highly recommend camping here!
Enchanting location! I arrived after dark and loved waking up to the jungle. I also enjoyed walking down and meeting the locals at Uncle Roberts! Friendly and wonderful! I would stay here again!
The Ewa Wava farm is a delightful place to setup camp on the Big Island. The grounds are maintained with great care and is very lush with meandering trails, fruit trees, and even a lava tube cave! A short walk down the road is a restaurant, convenience store, and access to an easy walk over lava formations toward a magnificent view of the coastline. Our host, Tracy, was quick to respond to our questions via text and was so thoughtful during our stay. He took us along the trails on the property, shared fun facts and stories about the farm and Hawaii, and even left some firewood for us while we were out exploring for the day. It rained the three nights we were there but it was still fun to fall asleep to pattering raindrops and the active coqui frogs. The shower was also hot with good pressure and situated under a beautiful Monkeypod Tree.
From this location, we visited the Botanical Gardens, drove along the east coast to many hiking trails, and drove across Saddle Road towards Kona for a fishing excursion. All in all, this is a perfect place to stay to explore the Big Island of Hawaii. Thank you, Tracy! We hope to return to Ewa Wava very soon!
