Fodor's Hawaii 2014
Halulu Heiau Review
The well-preserved remains of an impressive heiau (temple) at Kaunolu village, which was actively used by Lanai's earliest residents, attest to this spot's sacred history. As late as 1810, this hilltop temple was considered a place of refuge, where those who had broken kapu (taboos) were forgiven and where women and children could find safety in times of war. If you explore the area, be respectful and leave nothing behind. Be sure to bring along water and wear sturdy shoes.
This place is hard to find, and hard to reach. The four-wheel-drive-only road is alternately rocky, sandy, and soft at the bottom. From Lanai City, follow Highway 440 west toward Kaumalapau Harbor. Past the airport, look for a carved boulder on the hill on your left. Turn left on the dirt road and follow it 3 miles to another carved boulder, where you'll turn right and head downhill.
