Laupahoehoe Point Beach Park Canvas Prints

Laupahoehoe Point Beach Park Canvas Prints Located on the Big Island’s Hamakua Coast, Laupahoehoe Point is a peninsula covered with coconut palms, grass and black lava rocks on the shoreline, which contrast beautifully with the deep blue ocean. On a sunny day, the ocean is particularly blue here. Laupahoehoe is known for its scenic views, but it also holds a tragic past. It was here where a tsunami killed 19 schoolchildren and 5 adults on April Fool’s Day in 1946. The names and ages of the victims were engraved on a rock, which serves as a memorial in the park. The village was later relocated further inland to avoid another tragedy. Laupahoehoe Park is a nice spot for a picnic and picture taking, but when it comes to water activities, the options are limited. Other than exploring the nearshore tidepools, the ocean is too furious and dangerous here for swimming. When you’re out on the peninsula, you can often times see the waves crash against the lava rocks. This beach park is situated on a peninsula of lava that just out from the northern coastline of the Big Island, creating a very scenic area that is well worth the drive off the main thoroughfare. A large lawn provides a nice place to relax. A plaque at Laupahoehoe Point Park memorializes the 24 people killed in the April Fool’s Day 1946 tsunami. The giant waves rose to 56 feet above sea level sweeping away a schoolhouse on the point along with 21 school children. The name of the area comes from the word describing the type of lava (pahoehoe) that formed this peninsula which is shaped like a giant leaf, or lau.
