Nice shot of flotsam beach.
Yes, this is an old Hawaiian open-air temple called "Heiau".
This particular is the oldest of its kind and also most sacred.
In old days (before cca 1820) it was a place of human sacrifices.
At this time, only personal offerings are made and worship of chants.
It is definitely religious facility which is still active.
This trail leads to Mauna Loa but it is actually called "Observatory Trail". Thanks for a nice picture!

Well, I researched this strange decoration and it turns out it was not supposed to be VIL but SF = Sigmund Freud. If it really was the case then the sculptor made Sigmund almost unrecognisable from Vladimir Ilyich :-P
