Destiny itself is like a wonderful wide tapestry in which every thread is guided by an unspeakably tender hand, placed beside another thread and held and carried by a hundred others - Rainer Maria Rilke

Mary Kawena Pukui translates Honokahua place name as “foundation bay.” Hono is a suffix word that refers to the low land between two ridges. In the upland, a valley is usually called ke awāwa, and a valley with a running stream is called ke kahawai, but at the mouth of the valley, where the lowland forms a crescent at the shore and ridges end in points that jut into the sea, the term is hono. Therefore, some bays are rightly named hono and some are not.

Kahua is a word meaning “foundation” or an open place for camping or sports. It was often used as a term for an encampment of warriors. The broad flat slopes above Honokahua Bay might have been used for some of these activities. We know that in the battles of 1738, Alapa‘i camped his Hawai‘i Island troops at Honokahua, and some of the fighting occurred here. Many fallen warriors are buried at the Honokahua Preservation Site above the bay. In all of Ka‘ānapali district, these foundation lands of Honokahua were probably the most suitable for Makahiki games. . .

On Maui in the northwest area, the district the ancients called Ka’ānapali there are six hono bays, which are legendary: from South to North, Honokōwai (bay drawing fresh water), Honokeana (cave bay), Honokahua (bay foundation), Honolua (two bays), Honokōhau (bay drawing dew), and Hononānā (aggressive bay). Collectively, these picturesque and productive bays are called Na Hono A Pi‘ilani, The Bays of Pi‘ilani. King Pi‘ilani, who ruled Maui in the early 16th century, loved these bays and frequently came here with his court to relax, fish, and surf.

It was a common practice of Hawaiian Kings to take a large retinue of family, advisors, and punahele (favoured companions) to a special place, stay as long as the local provisions lasted and then move on to another spot. - The Bay at the Ritz” and “The Bay at Fleming Beach Park” are modern monikers for the largest bay of northwest Maui, Honokahua Bay. In ancient times this bay, north of Makāluapuna Point was the port for all northwest Maui. - excerpts from the writings of Katherine Kama'ema'e Smith
