Description 

The boulders at Kahakuloa Head lay in the saddle between Kahakula Head and Pu'u Kahuli'anapa. Like everything else on the islands the boulders are volcanic in origin, but have a smooth sandstone texture. The boulders are highly featured with flakes, knobs, and honeycomb pockets, and a generous coating of lichen.

Getting There 

Drive Hwy 340 east of the sleepy town of Kahakuloa to a pullout, on the left, just past mile marker #14. Park in the turnout and walk north toward the ocean. The boulders are 100 yards from the parking area.
