    This is a pretty creepy site knowing it is the site of human sacrifices, but also beautiful in a way. The wind really whips up there, but the view is stunning!  more »

    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.

    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.
