Our Wahi Pana (Storied Places)

Visit the ancient fishing community of Kaunolu, a national historical landmark. The village contains the ruins of more than 80 homes, a heiau (temple) and other structures said to be the most extensive and best preserved in the state.
Keomoku Village
A major settlement for farmers, fishermen, and ranchers until the 1950’s, it was also home to the Maunalei Sugar Company, a short lived venture at the turn of the century.
Kaiolohia (Shipwreck Beach)
Fronting the ruins of an old lighthouse, Kaiolohia (rough seas), is also known as Shipwreck Beach and home to a Liberty Ship from WWII, sunk purposefully on the reef when decommissioned.
Waiaopae Fishpond
Believed to be over 800 years old, the ancient fishpond, which once provided nourishment to hundreds of native Hawaiians on the island, is being restored under the guidance of the Lanai Culture and Heritage Centre.
Keahiakawelo (the fire of Kawelo)
Legend says that Kawelo, a famous priest of Lanai, kept a fire burning as he successfully offered prayers to protect Lanai’s people from another chief on Molokai. Keahiakawelo (the fire of Kawelo), a heritage site accessible by 4x4 vehicles, offers a visually stunning landscape featuring lava boulders, richly colored soils and vistas of neighbor islands.
