Kaunolu and the Kaholo Pali, Lana`i

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Grant Kaye

When I was younger, I would go diving with my Hawaiian friends at this place, called Kaunolu - where King Kamehameha I spent his summers in the days of the Kingdon of Hawai`i. Legend has it that he encouraged his warriors to leap from the cliff at top right into the sea to prove their bravery and devotion to their king.

Location: Kanolu, Lana`i Hawai`i
