They were part of eruptions from the now dormant Koʻolau Volcano. Other well-known volcanic landmarks, include the Punchbowl CraterHanauma BayKoko Head, and Mānana Island.

A nice surprise at Waikiki beach is the statue of Mahatma Ghandi that is placed near Waikiki Beach in the Queen Kapiolani Park near the zoo. I love that he is draped with leis.
