Ili'ili'opae Heiau (Sacrificial Stone)

The enormous stone platform measures 36m wide by 97m long and in ancient times was used by priests to conduct human sacrifices. The heiau, located on Highway 450 near Kaunakakai, can be visited on foot or by horseback.
Halawa Valley and Bay
Discover a beautiful and remote valley of hiking trails, waterfalls and ancient Hawaiian religious and cultural sites that ends at a pristine beach and bay. The stunning crescent of golden sand and crystal clear water of Halawa Bay make it an ideal secluded spot to sunbathe, body surf or snorkel.
Kalaupapa National Historic Park
Saddle up for a guided tour atop the highest sea cliffs in the world to Kalaupapa. The 4.6km trail winds through 26 switchbacks and offers an endless blue seascape. Years ago the park was home to a selfless Belgian missionary who treated disease victims who were exiled to this beautiful but isolated location.
