Great snorkeling because of the reef but it is rocky and difficult for the inexperienced to enter and exit with fins. Once you're in the aquatic life is incredible. The breaks were also perfect here for our college age son to surf daily in March.

Always fun to explore this small park and check out the different markers. Usually lots of beautiful crowing roosters.

This looked like more of a piece of empty property than a park. We stayed next door & I don't believe we ever saw anyone at this park at all.

We have stayed across the street on two seperate occcasions and thought we'd better go look and see. There wasn't much to see. Not much signage or explanation of the park. Wish there has been more information about the park (some historic info on some more signs). There was some "rubble" which had clearly been something, but there were no... More

This is on the way to National Tropical Botanical Gardens, the Sheraton, Spouting Horn, so if you want to combine it with something I recommend that. This is a very quick pullover stop out of you car. 20 mins max. It has a historical marker that explains the stop. You cannot walk up to the monument. It was interesting for... More

As the birth place of Prince Kuhio in a grass hut, it's a sad attempt to honor a good man and an important piece of island history. Small statue, aligned rocks, dead grass, and a picnic shelter. If you like history, go to the History Museum in Lahui and spend a half-day.

Since the park was outside our hotel bedroom we thought we go for a walk around. There is not much to it as it is a site preserved to honour Prince Kuhio, the last prince of the Hawaiian royal family. He served in the American congress to push for Hawaiian rights and independence. Once a week the native Hawaiians have... More
