- This was the site of important Hawaiian settlements before arrival of European explorers. It includes coastal areas, three large fishponds, a house site and other archeological remnants. Resources include fishponds, kahua (house site platforms), ki'i pöhaku (petroglyphs), hölua (stone slide) and heiau (religious site).
Because the park is still relatively undeveloped, there are very few facilities available within the park. There is a chemical toilet located at Kaloko Pond and at Ai'opio, there is also a composting toilet located along the trail leading from the south end of the park to Honokohau Beach.
Visitors can hike along the coast through the park and enjoy other activities such as: picnicking, fishing, snorkeling, swimming, bird-watching, and surfing. Other activities enjoyed in the park include backpacking, sea kayaking, SCUBA diving and viewing wildlife.
Kaloko-Honoköhau is located at the base of Hualälai Volcano, along the Kona coast of the island of Hawai'i. It is three miles north of Kailua-Kona and three miles south of Kea hole-Kona International Airport, along Highway 19 (the Queen Ka'ahumanu Highway). There is no park sign or visitor center (yet) in this newly established park, so a trip to the park headquarters may be helpful to get your bearings.
