“Fun place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

It was fun to learn some Hawiian history. Right next store is a great place to go snorkeling or diving. It's called Two Step. Literally 2 steps into the water. Great day trip.

“Place of Refuge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

You can get some really informative information about the early peoples of Hawaii. Very interesting and worth visiting. One story is that if a person was being sought for an offense (possibly punishable by death) and they made it to this "Place of Refuge", they were spared and were permitted to go on living. Nice...........

We really enjoyed walking around this park. It is very peaceful and amzingly well preserved. The beach is beautiful and the grounds are easy to navigate.

“Great way to learn Hawaiin history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

This was one of our first stops on the Big Island so that we could learn about the history of the area. Took the cell phone tour of the site which was very easy, and very informative.
Make sure to take some water with you.

“Great snorkelling at two steps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Well worth a visit, second best snorkelling that we did on the big island. Easy to find although toilet facilities were awful.
