Places To Go
Take a walk back in time to old Hawaii as it was many centuries ago. Ki'i (carved statues) watch over and surround the Hale o Keawe, the former resting area of 23 Keawe line chiefs. The great wall, spanning up to 17 feet wide and averaging 10 feet in height will amaze you with its huge rocks fitting together like locking puzzle pieces. Footpaths take you past Hawaiian temples and other ancient structures. Puuhonua o Honaunau has many places visitors can go to experience the Hawaii of yesterday and today.
Did You Know?
Did you know that according to legend, Queen Ka'ahumanu once swam a great distance to the pu'uhonua after a quarrel with her husband Kamehameha I? She hid under a large stone, but her barking dog gave away where she was hiding. After her husband found her, the two soon made up.
