There’s a number of subdivisions that exist in the Puna district, each with its pluses and minuses (and of course a lot of things that are neither a plus nor a minus). We’ll give an overview of some of the aspects of each one. But this is really only a start as there are a lot of smaller subdivisions and neighborhoods that we’re not covering here (or we’d have carpal tunnel syndrome enough to kill us).

Starting up near Volcano and heading down the highway to Kea’au, we have Mauna Loa Estates, Aloha Estates, Fern Forest, Eden Roc, Fern Acres and Hawaiian Acres.

Heading down the highway from Kea’au to Pahoa, we have Orchidland, Ainaloa, Tiki Gardens, Hawaiian Paradise Park, Hawaiian Beaches, Hawaiian Parks, Hawaiian Shores and Hawaiian Shores Recreational Estates (aka HSRE).

In the area around Pahoa, we have Leilani Estates, Nanawale Estates, Black Sand Beach  and Lanipuna Gardens.

Along the “Red Road” that runs along the ocean, there’s Kaimu-Makena Houselots (and Homesteads just up the road off the ocean a ways), Kehena Beach, Puna Beach Palisades and Kalapana Seaview.

At the tip of the island (the easternmost part of the whole state of Hawaii) are Kapoho Beachlots and Kapoho Vacationland. And then there’s Wa’a Wa’a, an example of Old Hawaii.
