Prince Kuhio Park is an historical and cultural site in Kauai, marking the birthplace of Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole, one of Hawaii's most cherished royals and the last heir to the royal Hawaiian throne. He worked tirelessly for native Hawaiian rights and was a delegate to Congress for 20 years; his birthday, March 26, is still celebrated as a state holiday. The park includes the foundation of his royal home, a fishpond, and a temple made of lava rocks.
It sits across the street from rocky Ho'ai Bay, where swimmers usually don't venture but divers relish the offshore reef and snorkelers love the turtles and other sea life they find in the shallow protected areas among the rocks.
Take Poipu Rd. toward the ocean and veer right onto Lawai Beach Rd.
