  • We were staying at a rental near here. Our host recommended that we stop here to watch the sunset. The entrance says that gate closes at 5pm but we got there at about 6:30 or 7 and were just in time f...  read more »
  • I came here over ten years ago. We got here close to sunset so the light was fading and most of what I remembered of it involved it seeming like we were driving into the middle of nowhere to get there...  read more »
  • The Heiau is amazing. A large rectangle made up of a stone wall marks the sacred ground. There are lots of rocks wrapped in leaves on the wall, or near it as well. This place is so serene and so beautiful. I have visited this location many times and there are never a lot of people are there. There is a path behind the Heiau to the right that leads to a spectacular view, however, this could be very dangerous for children because there are no railings keeping a person from falling down the cliff. Very cool place!
  • Well, another big disappointment, thanks to the neglect of the parks department. Wish my pictures today looked like some of these. All I could see was overgrown everything. Hardly any view of Heiau, no view of ocean unless you swathed a path to the cliffs, or climb some cement thing. Impossible to get good pic there because of the ungodly power poles and power lines hangin. I've only been here 5 years, but I've sadly watched all the public parks, beaches, the once beautiful downtown district, canals, waterways all going to the dogs. While the money to care and maintain our amazing island going to the Rail, and homeless, who create the bulk of the UGLY here! And, now why has this island not banned spray paint?? Throw people in the pokey for smoking weed, but heathens with spray paint are allowed to trespass, vandalize all personal, private property of others, at their expense. Wake up politicians, get your priorities straight! For the people who elected you, and paying you.
  • This is a great place that is very easy to miss. This sacred ground has a lot of history about the islands and has remains of old structures that once stood. A nice trail is also right here at the property with some great views of the North Shore at the end of it!
  • Excavated and cleared. Good parking. Trail below leads to pill box with commanding view of North shore
  • Great views, with a lot of history. We stumbled upon this place and just spent a few hours learning and looking around.
