1. Keoneloa Bay Marker
Inscription. Stone and coral tools found a Keoneloa Bay , or long sand, helped arcaeologists determine that early Hawaiians used the area between 200 and 600 A.D. as a temporary fishing camp. Later Hawaiians left remnants of heiau, or temples, and ahu, or altars. They prayed to Kāna‘aukai, an important fishing god.
