About Kalahuipuaa Historic Park on Big Island, Hawaii

Kalahuipua’a Historic Park is centrally located in the Mauna Lani Resort and for that reason its parking lot is used more for beach access than it is for its historical value. A paved trail meanders through this undeveloped lava field from the public parking lot toward the ocean. This small lot fills up fast every day so it’s best to visit this park (and the beaches) earlier in the day.

The highlight of the park is a cave that was once used by native Hawaiians as a shelter. Other places signed along the trail include lava tubes and Hawaiian tool making sites.

The trail is only about a quarter-mile long and your hike should be followed by a visit to Mauna Lani Beach. The trail between Kalahuipuaa Historic Park and the beach includes a visit to the Kalahuipuaa Fishponds, a picturesque spot surrounded by palm trees that can be photographed from the shore.
