Kaloko-Honokhua National Historic Park is dedicated to historic preservation, protection, and interpretation of native Hawaiian culture and activities. The 1160 acre park was established in 1978 on the site of an ancient Hawaiian settlement on the Kona Coast of the Island of Hawaii. Historic resources include fishponds, home site platforms (kahua), petroglyphs (ki'i'pohaku), and a religious site (heiau). These are in a setting where ancient lava flows from Hualalai Volcano entered the sea. The park is also a marine and coastal wildlife preserve.
