If you’re going to see the Kalaupapa lookout make sure to include this. To get to the Phallic rock there’s a short easy hike.

A cool get away from the beach. These rocks are near an overlook about 1500 feet above the ocean. Spectacular view. Sometimes docked in with fog but just wait!

Near the overlook parking lot head left up a trail for 250yds and you will find one of the Hawaiian cultural locations. Easy hike on an easy trail. Worth the trip. Its a Hawaiian religious site with an interesting legend surrounding the rock formations.
