Places to Visit on Hawaii Island
Pu`uhonua O Hōnaunau
A Place of Refuge Imagine you had just broken the sacred laws, the kapu, and the only punishment was death. Your only chance of survival is to elude your pursuers and reach the Pu’uhonua, a place of refuge. The Pu’uhonua protected the kapu breaker, defeated warriors, as well as civilians during the time of battle. No physical harm could come to those who reached this place of refuge.
The snorkeling is really great at two-step where this photo was taken.
