Neighborhood: North Kona
Overview

Built by King Kamehameha I, in devotion of Lono - the god of fertility, Ahuena Heiau now stands on this Big Island as a symbol of ancient Hawaiian religious traditions. Exuding an aura of mystique and timelessness, it consists of a stone wall, a Kamehameha statue and a few palm leaf huts surrounded by water on almost all sides. Although no one can enter this Hawaiian holy site, it is possible to go right up to the gates that protect it. Another good viewpoint is from across the Kailua Pier while the Kamehameha beach nearby acts as a thriving location for your family.
