Overview

Tucked between Anaehoomalu Bay and the Marriott, this attraction is what remains of an ancient fishpond. The pond was built for the collecting and farming of fresh fish. Furthermore, fish was a constant source of food for the high chiefs that lived in and around the coastline. Today, the edges of the pond are covered with vegetation. However, during ancient times, the rock walls provided an ebb and flow of sea water that would nourish the fish (but not let them escape into the bay). Visitors to the area are welcome to take self-guided tour of the fishponds and are cautioned not to enter the ponds at anytime.
