Milolii: Last fishing village in Hawaii.

Milolii is an unincorporated community on the island of Hawaii in the U.S. state of Hawaii, 33 miles south of Kailua-Kona. The village is situated at the seacoast where the 1926 lava flow from Mauna Loa entered the ocean.

Milolii is purported to be "the last Hawaiian fishing village" according to a wooden sign in their community center.[1] Without access to power lines or water, each house provides its own electricity and water with solar panels and tanks that collect rain water.
