About the Luahiwa Petroglyphs on Lanai

An introduction with facts and general information about Luahiwa Petroglyphs on the island of Lanai in Hawaii.

ENTITY: Luahiwa Petroglyphs
LOCATION: Island of Lanai, Hawaii

The Luahiwa Petroglyphs are located in central or southern Lanai on the way to the Palawai basin. They cover a three acre area, and most of the petroglyphs are mostly on the south side of more then 30 rocks and boulders on a hill with a view of the Palawai Basin.

Directions from Lanai City: drive toward Manele Bay on Highway 400 and turn left at the first dirt road. Head for the large water tank, and look for the petroglyphs on the slopes of a hill, just past the water tank.

FROM THE ARTICLE: "located about a half mile from the highway in the Palawai hinterlands is a small hill which is covered in petroglyphs. The Luahiwa petroglyphs are similar to those found elsewhere on Lanai - such as those at Kaiolohia and Kaunolu - they are special because of their proximity to town (about 10 minutes from lanai City) and the huge number of drawings (nearly 1,000).
