Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park

This park on the Big Island’s black-lava coast north of Kailua-Kona is where ancient Hawaiians who had broken the law could elude certain death. It was known as “The Place of Refuge,” and is still considered a sacred site today. Featuring traditional carved kii (tiki-like figures) and a 263-meter-long (965-foot-long) lava-stone wall, Pu'uhonua O Honaunau is located on scenic Honaunau Bay.
