Puako park on the Big Island of Hawaii is a really cool area to walk around. Accessible from both the Mauna Lani Resort or the Fairmont Orchid, the general public can also access this area via a public parking lot, complete with a publicv restroom! From the lot, you can walk through a field of lava rocks to the ocean.
The lava flow is still preserved!
Continuing on, you get to the Kalahuipua’a fish ponds:
Now, they are preserved for it’s beauty
And a nice stroll on the way to the beach:
Further down, there are petroglyphs in the lava rocks but it was so hot on this day, we headed to the beach instead. Oh, well – I guess that just means we have to go back!
