Beautiful! Stop and take in the beauty and history of this place. Very close to the Dole Plantation. Park on the shoulder and a short, flat, easy walk to where Hawaiian royalty was born. Read about the history and it makes it even more special....More

Although a bit difficult to find, visiting the Kukaniloko Birthing Stone Scared Place was a special experience. Seeing the Wahine HaPai, rising above us in the mountain range, as we walked along the red dirt road to the site, was intriguing. Here was the place...More

There is a sketchy pull-off near the gate, but the gate is going to be locked. My thought is that this deters most from visiting. It's not a long walk to get to the stones, but your shoes are going to get that red clay...More

The stones have been gated up so there is no parking and its a hike. I've seen no factual information as to if theses rocks are what they say they are. I could be wrong.

There is a tradition in the Celtic church that you find a holy place and then build a church there. I was reminded of that when I visited the Birthing Stones. It’s a beautiful and surprisingly peaceful spot, considering it’s proximity to the highway. Parking...More

Very pretty site. We went after the sun set and it was raining but the site was worth the stop if you enjoy history and do research on the site. Little to see other than rocks. You should respect the barrier to the rocks to...More

Pay your respects at this sacred and historical site. Birth of many Hawaiian royalty. No official parking at the entrance so beware of no parking signs. Could be a bit muddy walk from the highway to the site. Be respectful. Worth a quick stop.

This is sacred ground. It is best to come with a Kupuna that can tell you about this place, Enter quietly and listen to the birds as you walk around the stones enclosed by the small rock border. Do not step inside the border. Leave...More
