Kaulu Paoa Heiʻau information

Lonely Planet review

The roaring surf worked as a teacher to those who first practiced the spiritual art of hula, chanting and testing their skill against nature’s decibel levels. Keʻe Beach is home to one of the most cherished heiau, and it’s also where volcanic goddess Pele fell in love with Lohiau. Lei and other offerings for Pele can be found on the ground, and should be left as is. Enter the heiau through its entryway. Do not cross over its walls, as it is disrespectful and said to bring bad luck.
