Travel Review of Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site

Editor Rating 4.0 out of 5
Editor Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Hawaiian history buff? Then come here to learn about "The Temple on the Hill of the Whale," one of the last major sacred sites to be constructed in the late 18th century by Hawaiian leader Kamehameha I prior to the disrupting onslaught of European explorers to the islands.
  • The park is best explored with a guide who can fill you in on the history of the park. If a guide is not available, at least read the brochure, which can be picked up at the visitor's center.
  • Camping, picnicking, and swimming are not allowed in the park. They are permitted at nearby Samuel M. Spencer Park.
