The bay before you—named Keoneloa (or ?the long sand')—is the site of one of the oldest known Hawaiian occupation on Kaua?i, a temporary fishing camp, dating to A.D. 220-660.

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.
