Pohaku O Lanaʻi

“It is different in character from the rocks that line the coast, and unlike anything for miles around.”  Hawaiians know it as ‘pohaku lanai,’ and is said by them to have floated ashore ‘from Kahiki,’ (Tahiti.)

It is a balancing rock on a somewhat broader base, of limestone formation, with projecting top so as to afford material shelter in its shelving structure.  This is said to have been used as a lookout by fishermen in the region.
