Pu’ukohola Heiau National Historic Site is home to Hawaii’s largest Heiau. Constructed in 1791, learn more at the Visitor Center through exhibits, art, and artifacts, including tools of war made from stone and wood. Then walk in the footsteps of King Kamehameha I to explore. The trail is not shaded so bring a sunhat and sunscreen. Also located here is access to the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail, a 175-mile trail network across the island. Even a short walk here is a delight for bird-watching, observing plants, and geology. There are two other Heiau, one of which is now submerged offshore, and a chance to spot sharks, whales, and dolphins. Entrance is free.
