Lapakahi State Historical Park
A self-guided, 1-mi walking tour leads through the ruins of the once-prosperous fishing village Koaie, which dates as far back as the 15th century. Displays illustrate early Hawaiian fishing and farming techniques, salt gathering, games and legends. Because the shoreline near the state park is an officially designated Marine Life Conservation District (and part of the site itself is considered sacred), swimming is discouraged. www.hawaiistateparks.org. COST: Free. OPEN: Daily 8--4.
