Visit here, and if you can, read up on Prince Kuhio in advance or better, print it out and take it with you. We stumbled upon this park while out on a bike ride and I'm very glad we did.

Nice place to walk through and chase roosters. Nice grassy well kept lawn. The park is a little on the small size. Park is located across the street from the beach.

Went twice with a picnic dinner to just watch the sun go down. Beautiful location to take your significant other and maybe make some brownie points because you probably need to make some because you probably did something wrong some time.

It was pretty busy when I was there but the views and waves were beautiful. Bathrooms are near by, there is some shade, and parking is accessible

This is a small park that was the birthplace of Prince Kuhio, one of the last of the Hawaiian royalty. It is also the site of a small heiau, which is a place where religious and royal ceremonies took place. It's often used today for Hawaiian ceremonies commemorating such events as Kahamehame Day, Prince Kuhio's Birthday, etc. There are a... More

This is a lovely little park, tailor-made made for a little stroll. There is a small lagoon, with lava-rock walls. There is an unassuming heiau, a place of ancient worship, used hundreds of years ago by the ancient Hawaiians. And tons of lawn, begging to be meandered upon. And you should. It really is a lovely place, not too big... More

This is one of our favorite snorkeling spots on Kauai. The beach access next to the restaurant is somewhat limited, but the fish are always a great attraction. The entry on sand, is small and there are rocks you need to be careful of. It is usually not too crowded and there are always many different fish. There is a... More

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.
