  • My husband and I attempted to drive out to the Heiau in 2015 but it was way too muddy for our car even though it was a 4 wheel drive-we just couldn't tell how deep those puddles were! This time we mad...  more »
  • On the map, it looks like you can drive to this site. I would not attempt it without real 4-wheel drive and mud tires. There are auto-eating puddles along the way, one of the many is shown in the phot...  more »

  • The state monument is down a 4WD track. At the end you find the birthplace of Kamehameha. However, you can't access the Mookini Heiau anymore. We saw glimpses of the masonry from the track, but all gates were shut.
  • Great place. Takes about 1 mile walk unless you have 4wd with high suspension. Place is amazing if you think about all the history. It's a great sot to watch whales. We saw many of them, very close to the shore.
  • Nice place with a great view and to make a break :-)
  • I some respects, it is like the trip to Hana on Maui, not much at the end of the road, but interesting views to get there. Do not try to drive in there. The "road" has deep holes that fill with water that could be deep or hiding large rocks. If you walk out there in the winter months, you should see many whales between the Big Island and Maui as you walk along the sea cliffs.
