Went out of our way to find it, which was not an easy task. We were expecting to see more than a few stones laying around.

Before going, you should read about the site and rituals associated with the location. It isn't marked and you need to know where it is to find it. When we arrived the gate off the highway was open so I drove in. The gate to the site was locked so I parked between the two gates. We almost were locked... More

Please read about these before you go. There is not much to see but the story is interesting. It is close to the Dole Plantation so stop if you have time. We did see a wild pig, kids thought that was cool.

I recommend you read a little of the history surrounding this place before you come. Otherwise you might find this place underwhelming. It is such a peaceful place and full of tradition.

This was ok to go and see just to say you've seen it and the history of it but other than that nothing spectacular.

Not much to see here but it is right on Kam Hwy so very convenient for a quick stop and a bit of history.

Make sure you read up on the history of these birthing stones before you come to visit. We went on a rainy day which made it an adventure. It was very muddy and it is a reddish clay that stick to your shoes so bring shoes that can get dirty!

If you're heading up to the North Shore from Waikiki, you're quite likely going to pass this place anyhow. Be careful as it's easy to miss, there's no big sign from the road. When you get to the Whitmore Ave intersection, it's the dirt road on the left (if you're heading north). There's very little parking (there were about four... More

Great slice of ancient Hawaiian history! I'd been before on a previous trip... Our children (8 and 11) didn't think they were as interesting as I thought they might. I still list as a must see!

As a two time home birthing mama, I just had to visit once I learned of this place. It's really hard to find, and when my GPS told me to turn onto the dirt access road, I thought I was in the wrong spot. Parking is extremely limited, so I actually had to pull off onto a grassy spot on... More
