Honaunau 'Apelila Ahiahi by wafox Honaunau 'Apelila Ahiahi by wafox
Honaunau 'Apelila Ahiahi is simply Hawaiian for "Honaunau April Evening"

This image was taken on sacred site. In the 16th century this was a place of refuge, providing sanctuary for defeated warriors, violators of taboos, and war criminals.

Today it is a national park and preserved for all to enjoy.

Here, as elsewhere along the Coast, lava flows (these from Mauna Loa) are the dominating coastline feature.
