Increased Stingray Activity
Kahaluʻu, blessed with an excellent water supply fertile soil, supported a large pre-contact population of both commoners and chiefs. Many house sites, heiau other habitation ruins, and petroglyphs are located at or near Kahalu’u Bay, which was a focal point for the community. Probably the most striking feature on the shoreline is the ruin of the great breakwater that once entirely enclosed Kahaluʻu Bay and Kealialia, the tidal lagoon of the Keauhou Beach Hotel. Known as Paokamenehune, the "menehune breakwater," the structure originally formed a semicircle, 3,900 feet long. Most of the huge boulders of which it was constructed have been scattered by the endless batterings of high surf, storm waves, and tsunami.
