Beautiful spot to see a stretch of coastline and imagine what it was like to be an ancient Hawaiian. There are lots of low stone walls and a couple of reconstructed dwellings. There are two self guided loops: 0.5 miles and 0.3 miles. You can get in the water at one spot if you want to. The water is nice and cool on a hot day and the rocky shoreline is nice because you can dry off without getting sandy.

Interesting place to see how the Polynesians lived in the last centuries. Information tables are a bit short but give some basic understanding. Bring your swimming gear as there is a rocky beach with heaps of fish.

You can learn a lot of history on this hour journey. The path is easy to navigate and they provide maps with the history by the numbers on the exhibits. Ancient Hawaiian culture plain and simple. A must see if you are anywhere near this park. Make sure you go early the park closes at 4!

Great experience gentle walk. You can literally feel what the villagers may have felt. Road less traveled worth the time.
