Don't blink or you'll miss the narrow paved side road that goes to Palapala Ho'omau Church that has Charles Lindbergh's grave to the right side of it. Set among lush vegetation close to the south coast of the island, you can see why he chose...More

Its nice church grounds well kept. A piece of history, how the F did he end up out here in Maui! It's easy to miss ask the people at laulima farms and they will tell you where it is.

We drove around the island (upcountry) to Hana and stopped at the little church to see Lindbergh's gravesite. We passed the road/street/path down to the church, but would likely have seen it easier if we were coming from Hana. The church is very small, the...More

Walk past the church and graveyard down to the cliff overlooking the ocean and you will understand why Lindbergh chose this as his final resting place. Be respectful of the church and graves.

About a mile from Kipahulu (Haleakala National Park) away from Hana, turn left onto an unmarked road. If you find the main road getting difficult to drive (a bit scary), then you have driven too far from Hana. Find a safe place to turn around....More

The little church and park where Charles Lindbergh is buried is very quiet and peaceful. It's almost completely unmarked, you would never know such a famous person is there. Follow the directions carefully as the road is unmarked and there was no longer a sign...More

For many of us , This was a historic event. We insisted on stopping here, and everyone was content to do this. Again, you have to be older to understand.

Depending on the day and the time you happen to stop at the church will determine just how close you can park. Just remember it's exactly one mile (1.6kms) from the sacred pools (that aren't sacred).
