Big Island Sights

Lapakahi State Historical Park

Updated 01/06/2014

Fodor's Review

A self-guided, 1-mile walking tour leads through the ruins of the once-prosperous fishing village Koai‘e, which dates as far back as the 15th century. Displays illustrate early Hawaiian fishing and farming techniques, salt gathering, games, and legends. Because the shoreline near the state park is an officially designated Marine Life Conservation District (and part of the site itself is considered sacred), swimming, swim gear, and sunscreen are not allowed in the water.

Restrooms are available but not drinking water.
