Heʻeia State Park information
Despite having little to offer, this park on Kealohi Point has picnic potential and views of Heʻeia Fishpond to the south. This location was sacred to the ancient Hawaiians as a place of final judgment at life’s end. Some believe there is a still portal to the spirit world here, but the heiau on this site was destroyed in the 1800s and the park office and community hall were subsequently built over it. A small craft and fruit farmers market is held near the park’s entrance from 9am to 3pm on Sunday, and there’s a sometimes-used traditional Hawaiian outrigger-canoe workshop just past the gate.
