It's hard to imagine how such a rugged hillside could have been the site of a brutal and tragic conflict. Especially being so close to a breathtaking edge to the ocean. A must see!

This site is lovely. A very short walk with beautiful views. The history of the Burial Ground is deep and somber.

Quick stop off the highway to see an important historical site. At this spot a battle occurred and is also a burial ground. Solemn, moving and sacred.

Easy hiking to lovely ocean view at this war memorial and burial ground. Lots of wild goat photo ops. Be respectful - this is a sacred place. Do not recommend flip flops.

This site holds historical significance and is the burial ground for warriors and one of the royals. It also has fabulous views of surf and sea and goats.

There was a flat walk to the edge of the rock shore. Waves splash high and the views are beautiful. We were there at dusk where there were many hearts of goats of all ages. The walk was on gravel but was flat and manageable!
