Kalahuipuaʻa Historic Trail

Historic Site in Mauna Lani Resort Area

The first segment of this easy trail meanders through a 16th-century Hawaiian settlement, passing lava tubes once used as cave shelters and a few other archaeological and geological sites marked by interpretive plaques. The trail then skirts ancient fishponds lined with coconut palms and continues to the beach, where there's a thatched shelter with an outrigger canoe and a historic cottage. Continue southwest past the cottage to loop around the fishponds and back to the start (about 1.5 miles round-trip).

Located on Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows grounds, the trail starts at a marked parking lot opposite the hotel convenience store.
