Ka Wai O Pele

Ka Wai O Pele “Probably the most striking scenic point about Kapoho is Green Lake, a beautiful body of deep green water occupying the crater called Waiapele, ‘Pele’s Lake.’” (Mid-Pacific Magazine, 1920) “They told us the name of the place was Kapoho, (the sunken in,) and of the lake Ka wai a Pele, (the water of Pele) …The saltness of the water in the extinguished volcano, proves the connection of the lake with the sea, from which it was about a mile distant”. (Ellis, 1823)
