The natural features of Kaloko-Honokohau are connected with the park's archeological and cultural features. The park's wetlands make up some of the Big Islands's finest. They are remnants of a once thriving aquaculture system. The park has many important natural features that help us understand the story of the park and its past use. The coral reef, anchialine pools, tidepools and wetland bird habitats are easily accessible.
