We accessed this trail from the Kaloko-Honokohau National Historic Park. It can also be reached from Hawaii Volcanos, Pu’uhonua o Honaunaum Parks and the Pu’ukohola Heiau Historic Site. Largest fish pond wall in the state of Hawaii, this was King Kamehameha I favorite pond. The coastal trail is175-miles long and runs along the west and south shores of the Big Island but is not a continuous one. Hence, the access points mentioned above. The fishpond is accessible by a rough, unpaved road north of the Visitors Center of Kaloko-Honokohau National Park. The bumpy road passes by ancient rock walls and foundations entroute to the Kaloko Fishpond and Kaloko Kuapa. A kuapa is a rock wall fishpond. These were constructed using interlocking large and small rocks. The only part open to the public is the stonewall next to the parking lot. There are picnic tables if you choose to sit and enjoy the view or have a picnic lunch.

If you want to see turtles get there between 9-10AM. Dozens - just sunning and eating. It is a buffett for sea turtles. After 10 they move out to sea so catch them early. Wow.

There are dozens of fishponds all over the Hawaiian Islands. Some are more of less in tact though most are not. Not too far away are two more - Ni"aupala and Kaopeahina.

We didn't really see the pond as from the place we stopped our car it wasn't accessible due to some small comunity of people living there in its vicinity. They were friendly but didn't allow us to go through their "property" as they were fishing there. We might have approached from another side but decided to continue our journey.

We stayed at a cottage on a fish pond. It was beautiful and we were very respectful of it. We loved watching the tide flow in and out.

There's a large Hawaiian community on Molokai trying to remain in touch with their heritage. This fishpond represents that effort. It is in amazing condition thanks to the ongoing volunteer rebuilding program.

Molokai's inside shore used to be lined with fishponds. You can see remnants of them as you drive the coastal highway. Kalokoeli is the best of the lot. Yes, the stones were restacked, but they're the same stones...
