Where are the Seven Sacred Pools?
This is difficult to answer because they don't exist - and never have. Some old guidebooks and misinformed tour guides may reference this place name. They are referring to the freshwater pools found at 'Ohe'o Gulch in the coastal Kīpahulu Area of the park. There are far more than seven pools, and all freshwater is considered sacred in Hawaii where freshwater is the source of life.
