Puukohola Heiau
Volcanic flows from the Hualalai eruption of 1800-1801 reached the ocean and destroyed a Hawaiian village in its path. Additional flows entered the sea along the north Kona coast from eruptions along the Southwest Rift on Mauna Loa in 1859. These flows entered the sea along the coast just south of the Puukohola National Historic Site (Rubin and Doo, 2004; USGS HVO, 1997). Haleakala volcano on Maui rises above the Alenuihaha Channel in the distance.
