We parked at the park to walk over to Mauna Lani to go snorkeling. This is the place they tell you to park at and do the walk over. The only interesting thing about the park is the big cave/lava tube that they say was inhabited by ancient Hawaiians. So Ancient Hawaiians lived like Cavemen? We went to nearly all... More

We inadvertently went here while trying to get to the beach @ Mauna Lani. There is public parking and it leads you right into the park, which has petroglyphs and fish ponds, caves, etc. It is all paved, and very nice. There are washrooms here too. At the front there are beaches and in the middle area there is great... More

This trail goes to some interesting lava tubes and then along the Mauna Lani fish ponds. It is well maintained and very pleasant. Start the hike near the entrance to the Mauna Lani Hotel spa and fitness center.

We walked the history tour which is very informative. But the gem of this is the fish ponds and beach! There is a brackish water pool with photo friendly eels! Lots of paths to explore, glad we found this place!

Things I wish I knew about this before leaving my hotel: 1. GOOGLE MAPS CAN LIE! If you click on the map in the TripAdvisor app and open in GoogleMaps, it will set you at the correct destination. However, if you shut down GoogleMaps, then reopen later using the same address, it will send you to the wrong location! This... More

This is a nice walk on a paved surface. We saw a lava tube along the way, pretty pond. Ends up by a nice beach, saw bright yellow fish in the water

So cool! The walk through the lava fields is easy on a paved walkway and explanations along the way were great! Cool cave to wander through just off to the left side before you get to the fish ponds.

This is a great tour. Strongly recommend to do. You can learn a lot about Hawaii volcanoes, lava tubes and the first settlers.
