Poipu in Kauai County, Hawaii — Hawaiian Island Archipelago (Pacific Ocean)
Sacred Fishing Grounds
The Hawaiians divided each island into sections—called ahupua‘a—that stretched from the mountains to the sea. The wall to your left is a reconstructed remnants of Kaua‘i’s past: it marks the boundary between the ahupua‘a of Weliweli and Pa‘a. You are now standing in Weliweli. Keoneloa Bay is in Pa‘a.
