General Information

Description - Haleki'i-Pihana Heiau State Monument encompasses ten acres on the north central shore of Maui and contains structures significant in Hawaiian history and culture.

Attractions - The site protects two important heiau (religious sites) used as war temples by Maui's last ruling chief, Kahekili. It is thought that on occasion these may have been the sites of human sacrifices. The walk around the hieau is about one-half mile and takes about 15 minutes.

Aside from the chance to view this site steeped in Hawai'ian history, this park provides an excellent view of central Maui and the Wailuku Plain.

Recreation - Visitors to Haleki'i-Pihana Heiau will enjoy interpreting the ruins of this historical site and the scenic views visible from the park.

Climate - The climate is pleasantly mild on Maui throughout the year. Temperatures vary annually between 60 and 90 degrees F. Summer temperatures range from 68 to 82 degrees F with the water usually near 80 degrees. Winter temperatures vary from 61 to 80 degrees F with the water temperature close to 77 degrees. More rainfall occurs during the winter than other seasons of the year and most of it falls on the northeastern or windward portion of the island. Temperatures on this island vary more with elevation than seasons. Expect temperatures to drop four degrees F for every 1,000 feet gained in elevation.

Location - This park lies in north central Maui southwest of Nehe Point in Kahului Bay. It can be accessed from Waiehu Beach Road via Kuhio Place at the end of Hea Place.
