Napoopoo Beach

This quiet bay is still the home to several local families. The rocky shoreline contrasts with the warm crystal clear waters that are a favorite od divers and snorkelers. However, this bay is one of the more significant historical sites in the Hawaiian Islands. Just off the rocky coastline is where Captain Cook and his fleet of ships with billowing white sails were mistaken by the Hawaiians as the arrival of the powerful diety Lonokamakahiki.
