Beach, snorkeling site, Hāʻena, Kauaʻi. Westernmost section of the calcareous sand beach fronting Hāʻena State Park. A small sand-bottomed lagoon off the beach is protected by a reef and provides one of the most popular snorkeling sites on Kauaʻi's north shore. Several important archaeological sites associated with the hula are on the hill above the beach. These include Ke Ahu o Laka, a platform where the hula is still performed by modern hula hālau, and Kauluapaoa Heiau, a shrine dedicated to Laka, the goddess of the hula. Lit., a hula master who is invited to access another's students.
