Burial grounds

Battle of Kuamo'o Burial Grounds

Follow the lava rock shoreline access road as far as you can to the left, and up a cement incline/road. You will find 2 concrete markers just to the right at the top of the cement incline. Wear good hiking shoes as there is lots to explore, but very rocky. This is a beautiful place to watch the sunset!

A sign asks visitors to respect the Lekeleke battlefield and mass burial grounds and stick to the shoreline access trail.
