A very interesting sight! We stumbled upon this by accident driving down the highway on a lazy day, and I'm glad we did! We were there on a sunny day, and the atmosphere or wandering an ancient village on a sunny day while the waves crashed against the shore was INCREDIBLE. I will forever remember the snapshot moment of sitting on a bench there, facing the ocean waves crashing against rocks, with the wind whistling through the grass behind me (see the picture!)

Good place for a short stop when driving along the coast, restrooms and water fountain. Chance to see an old Hawaiian fishing village (mostly ruins) and get a short walk in. Also: access to a clean restroom!! 🤙🏼

A very unique free ocean side park. Path takes around 45 minutes to walk, it takes you close to the ocean. Sometimes the path is closed after a rain. We saw several whales jumping off the shore.

A short walk (8/10 mile) over a stone lined trail . There is a short cut option reducing the distance to 1/2 mile. There are several benches if you need a break. Do not set on the walls. This ancient settlement was mostly abandoned in the 1800s. The remaining artifacts give you an idea of about life in Lapakahi. There are no attendants on site. There is one porta-john.

It's fun but not really enthralling for much more than a 15-20 min pit stop. Lots of reading as it is self - guided. Glad we learned some history for sure, though.
