This stone near the harbour was the birthing stone for the Hawaiian royal family. It has a curved shape in which the mother sat to give birth. Easily missed if you are just wandering by, it is worth seeing because of its history.

Located along the waterfront near the harbor in Lahaina just on the other side of the seawall. An interesting landmark, not much to look at, but historical.

It was essentially under water when viewed but it certainly had some interesting history and claimed to be the birthing stone of Kings and a few other things as well.. Interesting bit of history and fable but that was about it.

Hundreds of Hawaiian women gave birth on this stone. Amazing. Read the plaque and you'll learn a lot of history about this stone. No one seems to know it's there.
