The Backpackers was founded by Hawaiian local and legendary big-wave surfer Mark Foo.  The foundation and spirit he set are still alive and strong today.

This ocean-front accommodation is visited frequently by just about everyone- families, surfers, or just anyone looking for an affordable, yet enjoyable, place to stay!  With the supermarket a few-minute walk in one direction, and the famous Waimea Bay in the other, there is no need for a vehicle!  If you do prefer a set of wheels, Backpackers provides bicycles, among many other things, for rent.

Don’t feel like walking or riding much at all?  The Backpackers is conveniently located directly across the street from the popular dive spot, Three Tables Beach.  Surrounded by food, beach, ocean, and mountains, The Backpackers is enjoyed by many, and has a place for anyone!
