Access to the historic site is by the pier . Although the site is on the property of King Kamehameha Kona Beach Hotel it is open to the public and is free. The location served as the former residence and temple of King Kamehameha. An NPS site indicates that there were thatched huts, a place of worship, worksheds, storehouses and other buildings surrounded by a wall. None of the structures or wall remain. Much of the area was altered when the pier and sea wall were built. A Heiana (a replica of the temple) was reconstructed in the 1970s. You cannot go inside the heiana which is on a stone platform. Close to the landmark is where the hotel holds luaus. Be sure to go in the hotel and to see a mural, paintings and artifacts on display in the lobby and hallways. The sandy beach is a fun place for families with small children.

This is a historical site and certainly worth a visit. Part of the US National Parks so take your cards to get in. Closed toe shoes are better than sandles.

A part of the National Park Service, this area is a unique part of Hawaii's history - also known as the Isle of Refuge, it served as a sanctuary for those who found disfavor with Kamehameha and other royal family members - beautiful scenery even if you aren't into history...
