Nature & Science
The peaceful waters of Honaunau Bay lap upon shores of Keone'ele Cove. The majestic waters of the blue pacific stretch out before you beyond the stark lava landscape. Perhaps you will spot a green sea turtle swimming nearby or encounter a native Hawaiian plant along the trail. The power and beauty of the natural landscape surrounds you at Pu'uhonua o Honaunau.
Did You Know?
Did you know that cowboys used to call the Alahaka Ramp the “one foot out trail”? Due to the very hazardous condition of the ramp in the early 1900s, cowboys would ascend up or down the ramp with one foot out of their stirrup ready to jump free in case the need should arise.
