Remember this something about Hawaii, the closer you can buy land to a volcano, the cheaper the land. And the cheapest land i understand is found on the 'Big Island' as close to a volcano as you dare to get. I have tried living in Hawaii on the island of Maui a long time ago. I was living homeless in a small backpacking tent. It was a very difficult situation for me and i only lasted about 2 to 4 months before returning to St. George, Utah to continue my homeless lifestyle. I found out later that Maui had a large drug/marijuana culture. Since i have no interest in doing drugs, i was not aware of how widespread the drug scene is, and i guess it is quite large on the big island as well. It is probably quite difficult to buy low cost land on any of the Hawaiian Islands for the average income type person i would imagine nowadays, just too many people looking to live there . . .

  1. Hawaii Lava Land
    LAVA LAND HOT PROPERTY IN HAWAII   Picture on the right "A newly bulldozed road heads toward the Pacific across a lava field near Kalapana. Wooden stakes mark the corners of a lot. The parcel was recently sold by Roger Harris, a real estate agent with Pahoa Realty, a town some 10 miles away. Lots of 7,500 to 10,000 square feet in this area sell for between $15,000 and $20,000, Harris said. This Lava field is less than 20 years old."

    (January 13, 2008) It turns out Mark Twain was wrong when he said, "Buy land, they're not making it any more." On one of the most rugged and unspoiled coastlines left in the state of Hawaii, oceanfront lots sell for as little as $12,000. Say what? Don't you mean $120,000, or $1.2 million? That's what prime oceanfront property can sell for on the islands of Maui, Kauai and Oahu - if it's available at all. For less than the down payment on a Lexus in the Bay Area, buyers can acquire lots ranging from 7,500 to 10,000 square feet within earshot of the surf pounding the beautiful Puna District coastline on the southeast part of the Big Island. But while this may sound like an incredible bargain by anyone's standard, the landscape on which these parcels sit is almost totally devoid of any plant life. The ground is mostly flat, covered with distinctive ropey lava - known as pahoehoe in Hawaiian.
    It is among the newest land on the planet, laid down in the 1980s and 1990s during the continuing 25-year eruption of Kilauea volcano. While this is an extreme example of the kind of real estate for sale along the Puna Coast, scores of lots are for sale for less than $25,000. Many sit on lava fields that cooled into lustrous black rocky surfaces within the last quarter century. There are, of course, scores of more expensive lots situated on older lava flows that have been built on for years. But nearly all the land in the Puna District, home to about 40,000 of the island's 170,000 residents, is down slope of Kilauea's active southeast rift zone. Verdant tropical forests, which thrive on the 75 inches of rain that falls annually, cover the evidence of volcanism across much of the land. Because of the capricious nature of the flows, sections of the coast resembling the surface of the moon sit next to land that rivals the most expensive beachfront real estate on Maui, Kauai or Oahu. On the other islands, where volcanoes have long been extinct, property like this can fetch upward of $1 million an acre. "I consider (the Puna Coast) the most beautiful place on God's Earth," said Harry Kim, the mayor of Hawaii County and the island's political leader. "I have bought and I have built there." The entire Puna Coast lies within zones one and two on the US Geological Survey's volcanic hazard-zone map of the island of Hawaii. A nine-zone hazard classification system was created in 1974 by scientists at the Hawaii Volcanoes Observatory to help assess the risks of building and living on various parts of the 4,028-square-mile island. "It's a safe bet that if you own land in zones one or two, and possibly zone three, your land will be inundated by lava at some point," Kim said.
