It was interesting to see the historical buildings. I would not go out of my way to visit this spot. I did not like sitting at this beach. The water is calm...but it murky, standing at waist level I could not see my feet. Also there was a layer of sunblock visible at the water surface. The hotel guests use the beach. It was very crowded, we were there the end of December. There are many gorgeous Hawaiian beaches around the island, this beach felt like swimming in a murky lake.

This was an interesting section to visit by the Kailua Pier. Nice walking area with informative signs explaining different parts of this site. It was easily accessible and was an interesting part of my visit.

That's what Kamakahonu means -- the Eye of the Turtle. That's what King Kamehameha called this pristine tiny inlet of golden sand on his royal estate -- where he spent his final years. Easy to get to, it is directly behind the King Kamehameha Marriott hotel and worth seeing. Standing there thinking about the King in his last years is a trip.

There was more here than I expected. There was a nice little trail to follow. If you use the virtual tour, there is a wealth of information. We expected to just drop by and check it out. Ended up spending quite some time there.

By staying at KK Marriot, this sight was directly outside of our hotel so we saw it the first day we arrived.
