Overview

The larger of two saltwater fishponds located between Anaehoomalu Bay and the Marriot, this pond was an ancient Hawaiian method of aquaculture that provided fish for the villagers that thrived along the coastal area at Waikoloa. The rough conditions of the ocean necessitated the building of mortar-less rock walls to capture and keep ocean fish and avoid open ocean fishing during storms. Today, the rock walls are covered with vegetation, and visitors to the area are welcomed to take a free self-guided tour. It's worth mentioning that visitors are also cautioned not to enter the ponds for any reason at anytime.
