Not but maybe 100 yards from the Pu’ukohola Heiau is a beautiful beach park with granular light sand, shallow water, small waves and beautful coral. There are camping spots and activities such as volleyball court and hoops to make this an ideal spot for a reunion picknic or camping weekend. We enjoyed the waves but I couldn’t get out of my head that all those reef sharks were just to the side of us still in sight (although we didn’t see any we were told they were there and I believe the park rangers) so we didn’t swim too far from shore.
We enjoyed the drive home checking out the dramatic shoreline of the the northern tip of the island and just down the eastern edge of the tip. So beautiful we can’t wait to go back and hike it.
The drive was so green . We were welcomed from the dry side side of the island to the wet by a beautiful rainbow.
We learned that the annual rainfall at the Heiau was 9″ per year so out of curiosity we looked it up for the rainy side, Kurtistown, which is where we live.
