As per legend, he who lifted the three-and-a-half ton Naha Stone, would unite all the islands of Hawaii. At the age of 14, Kamehameha not only lifted the boulder but also flipped it over, and went on to become the first king of the Island of Hawaii. After him, no other person has ever done this feat. Now the legendary Naha Stone rests in front of the Hilo Public Library, and is open for all to see. Visitors can have some fun in trying to lift up this stone, and make it fun experience.

Naha Stone Reviews & Ratings

  • After all the hype built up around the legend of the Naha stone, it was great to stop by and see it for real. It isn't marked much in advance, so keep your eyes open to find this significant piece of Big Island history. #letsguide

  • The history/myth surrounding this large stone is what makes this interesting... It's the Hawaiian equivalent of the British legend of the sword-in-the-stone. Except this is more believable...

  • Nice place nice atmosphere! This is the Rocks that king kamehameha carried and set it down here!! Quite a feat!! Looks pretty heavy, but it is what the ancient history is! Aloha!

  • The Naha Stone is not much to look at. And, the walk to the Naha Stone is away from the main tourist district. But, there is not much else to see in Hilo, which makes the Naha Stone the historic artifact of choice for sightseeing.

  • Its a neat cultural attraction, but it really is just 2 big rocks in front of the library with a plaque. Dont expect anything more than that. Its worth walking out of your way if youre exploring downtown hilo or if seeing a culturally significant rock is your thing.
