This small, sugar plantation town has a “hippie feel” to it.

The famous country singer, Willie Nelson, is a frequent customer of Charley’s Restaurant when he is on the island, even though he is not one of the owners of the eatery, as some rumors suggest.

Charley’s Restaurant is also a hang-out for celebrities, political figures, musicians, and well-known surfers – it’s not uncommon to be sitting at the bar with someone famous.  Some nights there is live music in the evening.

Suggestions For Charley’s Restaurant:

  • Consider having breakfast at Charley’s on your early morning drive to Hana.  Try the pancakes (huge and can be shared) or an omelette.
