Napili-Honokowai is one of those places that has it all, as far as Island Living and Paradise goes.  According to some ratings, Napili-Honokowai is actually the best place to live in the entire state of Hawaii.  There’s a lot to be said for that.  I mean, the best place to live in what could possibly the best state to live is a pretty hefty achievement.

With a tiny population of only 7,261, according to the latest US Census data, this town could be considered “quaint” but what does that really mean in a state with really only one city?
