It’s impossible to miss the four towering tiki on a stone platform by the main turnoff for Poipu Beach Park, but you’re doing yourself a disservice if you just drive by. Still under restoration, this rock-walled, centuries-old complex contains a navigation-themed heiau (temple), fishpond and taro patches, home sites and a large games arena used during the winter season of Makahiki. Entry isn’t permitted, but well-designed signs explain the site’s cultural and historical significance.
