Found this hidden gem while following the gypsy driving tour! So glad we went to see it because the views are incredible! Thoroughly enjoyed the views which consist of the beach, Waimea valley and the surrounding hills. Just beautiful.

Nice drive to the parks, lots of speed bumps and curves. Worth a stop 🛑 for a different angel of the beach. Wild chickens run the area.

A place of refuge for the locals before the British arrived. The site is still sacred to the locals as evidenced by the food offerings left at the upper end of the ruins. Several mongoose from the forest were having a great feast when we...More
