Honaunau Bay
#1 of 4 Nature & Parks in Honaunau
We had a lots of fun! Diversity of marine life (turtles, fishes corals...) There are 2 parking lots: One at the church and one at the National park, both $5. Get there early if you want to avoid the crowd ;) There...
... are pristine and clear - in the morning you can see divers and snorkelers head down into the waters by Two Step to catch an array of different multi-colored fish - a living aquarium just steps away from the Park.

Within the extensive grounds of the park are a Great Wall over 1000 feet long and 10 feet high built of lava rock in the 1500's, reconstructed thatched roof Hawaiian houses, temples and wooden carvings of gods pro...
This "place of refuge' (pu'uhonua) is a beautifully renovated and preserved historical park where you can explore on your own with the park guide (1/2 mile walk) or with talks from the park rangers.

Paleaku Gardens Peace Sanctuary Captain Cook 3.4 km away
#2 of 7 Nature & Parks in Captain Cook
I particularly enjoyed sitting in a natural 'sanctuary' in the center of a spiral of shrubs and flowers and experiencing the serenity of being surrounded by nature.
Paleaku Gardens is a pleasant stop if you are in the area of the City of Refuge park or the Painted Church.
Kealakekua Bay Captain Cook 5.9 km away
#1 of 7 Nature & Parks in Captain Cook
The Monument has more sea life than Two Step (next to historical park), but has only two ways to access-kayak and hiking from atop the Napo'opo'o Road (you'll see cars parked near the trail head).
But we still enjoyed the snorkelling, as well as the relaxing park, beautiful view and friendly, quaint community.

Pae'a Captain Cook 0.2 km away
#5 of 7 Nature & Parks in Captain Cook
Snorkeling is almost as good as Captain Cook, without the need of a kayak ! Park your car along the road (if busy, you might need to pay, either peivate or at the national park entrance, but totally worth it), wal...
Parking is a bit of a hike unless you pay to park at City of Refuge (next door) and walk over.
The 1871 Trail
#4 of 4 Nature & Parks in Honaunau
This is a wonderful National Park and an important cultural site with a great hike along the coast cliffs on the 1871 trail.
This trail is most easily accessed from the Puuhonua o Honaunau National Park ($5 fee per vehicle) and the park gives out a trail map with information.

Park by the trail head (there was road construction when we were there so parking on the side of the road can become more limited...so get there early.
