It is sort of hard to find, but you'll know when you see a road that leads off to the west. Heading north from Honolulu to the North Shore, it is cloase to Wahiawa. You will have to park off the side of the road in the grass but it is almost guaranteed that if you find this site, you will have it all to yourself. Very cool to see!

A very historical and spiritual place. Off the beaten path a bit. Only negative is the parking. The upside is, very few people at any given time. If you are a history enthusiast, you will find it a unique visit. You literally are walking where royalty walked before you. From the stones showing grooves and indentations from where the poles at for the birthing process, to the red soil believed to have been stained from the birthing process, to the quiet, solemn settings, it is a moving experience. It pays sometimes to slow down a bit and visit sites that have had such an impact on the culture you're visiting.

All there is are birthing stones surrounded by a few palm trees but it's a real curio so it's worth visiting. Unfortunately, there's no car park and you literally park in the bushes. Also it's very difficult to find if your gps doesn't have it, there's no sign leading you. On the other hand, you don't have any crowds or tour buses trampling over this sacred place.

If you like visiting truly historical sites, please see the Birthing Stones. The stones were beautiful and the area was very peaceful.

I had this on my must do list as I work at a Birth Center. The location is beautiful- you must park on a dirt road and walk in to the actual site. It was beautiful and moving and worth doing some historical research before and after as well as talking to some Native Hawaiians for some added information about the real meaning of this beautiful place.
