Beautiful, historical Kealakekua Bay is the big draw on the south coast. Local organizations and businesses are working hard to keep it that way, as more people communing with the wildlife increases pressure on this marine-life conservation district famous for its rich variety of sea life, including spinner dolphins . To this end, new kayak regulations have been issued.

To reach the park, take Napoʻopoʻo Rd, off Mamalahoa Hwy, for 4.5 miles, passing a couple of ice cream shops and cafes en route. At the bottom of the road you'll turn right for Hikiʻau Heiau , a broad stone platform temple dedicated to war god Ku that was Kealakekua's religious center, or left for the wharf and kayak launch . There are bathrooms and showers near the heiau.
