Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park is reserved to preserve the ancient Hawaiian fish ponds that once flourished.
Today, the area is only a reservation of what once was a thriving fishing village. The white sand beach is rarely crowded and typically populated by nesting or resting green sea turtles.
The walk from the information center does go through hot lava fields that radiate the suns heat. Be sure to bring plenty of water for the journey.
Aiopio Fishpond and Kaloko Fishponds are the main attractions here, as local fisherman still come out with their nets to grab some fresh seafood.
