To survive in a hot and arid environment the native Hawaiians (kanaka maoli) used ancient fishing skills, including the building of fishponds, and the knowledge of the location of precious fresh water (wai) that flows into the many brackish pools throughout the park. The spirit of the people (poe) and the knowledge of the elders (kupuna) created a tradition of respect and reverence for this area. This is a place you can hear the voice of the land and generations of people away from the din of modern technology and commerce … Just Listen!

If you're looking for calmer waters and diverse landscapes & views, this is your place. An easy walk from the parking lot, opens up to beautiful waters, with lots of sandy beachfront. Shallow waters for most of this area, with smaller rocks dispersed with sand. We saw MANY sea turtles floating in the water very close to the shoreline. Not too busy. Will definitely be back.
We stopped on our last day on the Big Island and so glad we did. It was a nice walk to the beach after talking to the very helpful ranger. There were people, but it wasn't too crowded. Within 5 minutes we found 3 turtles relaxing on shore. It was so nice being able to hang out with them - from a respectful and safe distance. What a way to end our trip.
