Explore an ancient fishing village on the northwest coast of Hawai'i - With tropical views and a beautiful white coral beach

Drive north along the Akoni Pule Highway for approximately 45 miles. When you reach Lapakahi State Historical Park, turn left of of the highway and find a parking spot. 

The fishing village itself consists of several volcanic rock walls along the shore. It is a great stop while exploring the northwest coast of the island. Lots of informative signs to tell you all about the history of the area. 

The beach is calm and was quite quiet while we were there. There is some snorkeling in the area if you are so inclined.  

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
