Pictures of wood called Ki'i stand guard on a reconstruction of a temple and mausoleum containing the bones of 23 ali'i. Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park. Big Island. From the church, school, courthouse and homes left standing only part of the pier that once served to transport the cattle to Honolulu and a beach shared by local and foreign. About 40 miles north find Hapuna Beach, one of the 100 best beaches in the world according to the ranking of some of the guide books, but for my taste it is still another Waikiki again, where the tourist crowds detract any glamor. Nearby is Waikoloa Beach with its white stones and which brings together many surfers anxious emotions. Hawi is the northernmost town.
