Hikina Akala Heiau
The Hikina a ka la (rising of the sun) Heiau is at the north end of the beach at Lydgate State Park. Evidence indicates it was built around 800 A.D. It draws its name from the fact that it was built on the first spot in the Wailua area that the rays of the sun touch each morning.
