At Honokohau Settlement and Kaloko-Honokohau National Park it’s easy to imagine yourself living life Hawaiian style, catching fish from ponds made of lava rock walls, working on the shoreline and under the shade of palm trees and frond-covered hale. The caretakers here have done a terrific job of preserving, restoring, and educating the public to keep alive an important era.
In addition to learning, this is a great spot to relax with your family and play on the beach. The shallow tide pools and fish ponds are a great place to help keiki (children) learn about the ocean. The soft sands and plenty of shade are a great place to enjoy some sunbathing and a nice picnic.
