Description

At the end of the road at Ke'e Beach is the site of a heiau and ancient hula platform. Ka Ulu a Pa'oa Heiau, a short walk up a hillside from the beach, is reputed to be the birthplace of hula. A shrine to Laka, the goddess of hula, is located in a cleft in the hillside behind the hula platform. The best hula dancers in Hawaii once traveled to this site to study under hula masters. On rare occasions, hula halau (schools) return to the site to perform. Check with the heiau manager before entering and take care not disturb the site, which has important cultural and historic significance to Native Hawaiians.
