Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site

Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site

Detailed Description

Volcanic flows from the Hualalai eruption of 1800-1801 reached the ocean and destroyed a Hawaiian village in its path. Additional flows entered the sea along the north Kona coast from eruptions along the Southwest Rift on Mauna Loa in 1859. These flows entered the sea along the coast just south of the Puukohola National Historic Site (Rubin and Doo 2004; USGS HVO 1997). Haleakala volcano on Maui rises above the Alenuihaha Channel in the distance.
