Park at the side of the road and jump the fence. It's OK. Stay off the "prohibited" land. Walk to the end of the path to see the major stones.

My husband and I came to Oahu for our honeymoon. He lived here before but left 9 years ago. He explained that you use to be able to walk up to the stones and that there was a lot of powerful energy believed to be in the area. I know it sounds silly, but I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and suffer from infertility. My husband and I have been praying for a baby and I got it in my head that if I could pray by the stones, it would somehow help. Silly, I know. But my heart was drawn there for that reason. Oh well. :/

Just off the highway between Honolulu and the North Shore, you can spot the birthing stones of Kukaniloko. You can actually see some of them from the road. This is the location that tribal chiefs would have their children, and the stones commemorate these ceremonies. Fascinating bit of Hawaiian history.

I am hesitant to recommend Kukaniloko. This is an ancient place of great importance to Kanaka of the islands. IF you do choose to visit, it should be done with the utmost reverence and respect as it is still used to this day. There is now an outer boundary to the birthing stones and one should not cross over them without permission and understanding of the protocol that exists. Saying this 4/2019 but not sure what will happen next to the area as the Office of Hawaiian Affairs is now the carekeeper. Please just be very respectful, learn the history before going and continue your learning of O`ahu after.

We stopped here on our way back to the hotel from the North shore. It’s not marked at the street so you have to know where to look for it and just pull off to the side of the road. You can see the stones from the street and it’s a short walk to see them. The stones sit on land that was most recently pineapple fields. It’s been restored and preserved. This is a sacred site. Read up on it before you go and please be respectful.
