The Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park (or Place Of Refuge) is an ancient sanctuary. If you broke a law and was sentenced to death, you could make a run for the Pu’uhonua. If you made your way within its walls, you were safe.

This is a holy place so treat it with respect.

The hubby feels that the best from shore snorkeling in Hawaii can be found at Honaunau Bay aka Two Step Beach. The shore is rocky which means there’s no sand to mess with visibility and the coral was fantastic. For non-swimmers, there are tide pools with fish and turtles.
