The Lonely Tree of Mahukona Bay

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Māhukona is a former settlement on the island of Hawaiʻi. The extinct submerged volcano Māhukona, off shore and to the south, is named for this area. It was once the terminus of the Hawaiian Railroad.

Māhukona was a traditional land division (ahupuaʻa) that extended from a bay to the slopes of Kohala mountain. Much was owned by Princess Ruth Keʻelikōlani at one time. The name means "false harbor" in the Hawaiian language. Lapakahi State Historical Park is just to the south.[2] The harbor is located at just off of Akoni Pule Highway, Hawaii Route 270.
