    Unless you have 10,000 dollars to throw away, do not attempt any kind of archeological projects. This is a protected area.

    This bay is at times infested with black tip sharks. Traditionally, sharks do not enter shallow waters in direct light. However, do not be suprised to see a tiger shark swimming by while you stand on the docks at Kawaehai Harbor next door. It is advisable not to swim here at all. Many say the sharks do not harm but you never know!

    These plants are great for firewood but will pack a punch if you fall into it or touch its thonry stems. Be very careful while walking along the trails for these plans as they grow over the path at times. The park rangers often cut away the thorns on the lower lying stems.

    ouch!

    lau hala is a local craft in which one weaves dried palm leaves into mats, baskets, pillows, anything! I zoomed in on this person lounging about weaving. It also looks like hes fighting off mosquitos and sorting rocks.

Kawaihae Favorites

    Favorite thing: Don't be brave and forget it in the tour bus... bring water or a sports drink with you as the heat can really beat down on you. Wear a hat when necessary and put on lots of sunscreen.

    Fondest memory: Fourth grade field trip.
