Kalahuipuaʻa Fishponds information
These ancient fishponds are among the island's few remaining working fishponds and, as in ancient times, they're stocked with ʻawa (Hawaiian milk fish). Water circulates from the ocean through traditional makaha (sluice gates), which allow small fish to enter but keep mature, fattened catch from escaping.
To access the fishponds directly (without taking the trail), exit the hotel lobby and go south toward the beach.
