"Puuhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park" City of Refuge Tip by furioso
City of Refuge, Hawaii (Big Island): 3 reviews and 3 photos
Favorite thing: Puuhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park encompasses ancient temples, royal grounds, burial sites and a place of refuge (or puuhonua). It's worth spending some time exploring to check out the carved-wood representations of ancient gods; the stone board for playing konane, an ancient form of checkers played with black lava and white coral; and the wonderful snorkeling found off the natural lava steps just north of the place of refuge.
