Located on the edge of Kailua, Hawaii is the Ulupo Heiau State Historic Site. This heiau is also associated with Hawaiian mythology and legends of the Menehune, a mythological creature who lives in the deep forests and valleys of the Hawaiian Islands. The site is also associated with high chiefs like Kakuhihewa and Kuali’i.
Ulupo Heiau became a park that is made up of a stone platform that measures 140 by 180 feet and has 30-foot-tall outer walls.
Hawaii Is Home to Many Volcanos
Many know that Hawaii has 6 active volcanos. Not everyone understands that the whole state actually sits on top of active volcanoes. Hawaii is also the home of the most massive Volcano.
This means any moment, the whole of the island state could be completely devoured by the Pacific Ocean. The lava doesn't care what is in its way, it just wants to live its lovely lava life.
A Beach for Danger Lovers
Located on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, you can’t take a car to Hanakapi’ai Beach. You have to first take the Kalalau trail, which is known for being dangerous and difficult. The beach can be found approximately two miles into the hike and offers little relaxation for those who make the journey.
The waters are known for being deadly, as the strong current and large waves make them impossible to maneuver. A sign cautioning tourists to stay out of the waters indicates that people have lost their lives taking a dip in these waters.
Hawaii Is a Hot Wedding Destination
It should be a surprise that many people fly to Hawaii just to get married. The breathtaking views are the perfect background for a celebration of love.
This trend did not skip celebrity couples. In 2000, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor tied the knot at a beautiful oceanfront ceremony in Hawaii. Sharon and Ozzy did so in 1982 at a beautiful Hawaiian wedding on the island of Maui. The list goes on and on.
What Happened to the Coco Palms Resort?
The Coco Palms was at one point one of the most sought-after stays in Hawaii. Located in Wailuā, it is apparently located on the ground that belongs to ancient Hawaiian royalty. The first hotel on site started operating there in the 1950s, but it didn’t become very popular until 1953 when it was being run by Island Holidays Limited.
People used to come from all over to get married on the site and enjoy the tropical grounds. Sadly, in 1992, the area was hit by Hurricane Iniki and they were forced to shut their doors.
