Definitely stop in! And if you hike, take water! Highlights include the Petroglyphs and you'll have to look hard for them! The Ai'opoio Fish Trap is a nice beach area and we saw many of the turtles! Walking up the Honokohau Beach is beautiful and if you can make it to the 'Aimakapa Fish Pond, you should be rewarded with... More

I honestly do not understand how this place has such good reviews. It was the worst $5 I have ever spent. It's like watching paint dry. The little trail tour has nothing to see. DON WAIST YOUR TIME. it's a rip off.

We took Kayaks to the bay and snorkeled with a large verity of fish and spinner dolphins. Beautiful bay secluded in a historic area of the Big Island.

Man-o-man, this island just keeps producing one "gem" after another. A beautiful area, of historical significance, protecting fascinating wildlife; it's about as good as it gets. Throw in friendly and informative Rangers, (and some of the cleanest restrooms around), and the day is complete. There is also a touching memorial to a Ranger fallen in the line of duty. Come...

There are two ways to get here, off the hiway to the airport, or go to the marina and go to the north side; drive as far towards the ocean as you can, past the Yacht Club, find a place to park, there are plenty, and then walk along the edge of the harbor towards the sea. When you get... More

Very peaceful and magical place. I can say that we did not spent enough time over here. It was stunningly beautiful. Just as a site note our GPS kept taking us other places and for some reason could not locate this one.

This park runs for several miles and was created to protect the heritage and archaeology of the native coast from the highway to the shoreline. There are three entrances. Coming from the north, the first is a washboarded dirt road that takes you back to a remote site where an impressive seawall has been constructed to provide protection for a... More

Would like to spend more time here to walk all the trails. Visited on a rainy day, so did not stay long. Did see sea turtles and fish.

Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park is an awesome place to see big honus (Hawaiian green sea turtles) and some other wild life on the Big Island! The place is also very beautiful!
