Information about all of the United States National Natural Landmarks in Hawaii. Includes National Natural Landmarks on the islands of Oahu, Maui, Molokai, and the Big island of Hawaii.

Oahu National Natural Landmarks

Koolau Range Pali
The Pali is to the Island of Oahu what the Great Western Divide is to Sequoia National Park. Faulting and stream erosion are among the principal processes which give the cliffs their configuration The Koolau Mountain range was designed a NNL in November of 1972

Diamond Head
One of the best exposed and preserved examples of a typical volcanic cone of altered basaltic glass. Shows the bedding structure of the cone and the character of the rock. Diamond Head Crater was designated a NNL in February of 1968.

Maui National Natural Landmarks

Iao Valley
Valley and volcanic rocks on its enclosing slopes illustrate the major episode of volcanism which created the western portion of the island. Amphitheater shape is due to erosion on the volcanic rocks of a great caldera. Designated an NNL in November of 1972.

Kanaha Pond
One mile west of Kahului Airport. Most important waterbird habitat in Hawaii, and one of the few remaining brackish-water ecosystems providing refuge for both resident and migratory bird populations. Designated an NNL in June of 1971.

Big Island National Natural Landmarks

Makalawena Marsh
One of two remaining ponds in Hawaii that support a resident population of the endangered, non-migratory Hawaiian stilt, nesting site of the Hawaiian coot, and the only known breeding site of the black-crowned night heron on the Island of Hawaii. Designated an NNL in June of 1972.

Mauna Kea
25 miles west-northwest of the city of Hilo. Exposed portion of the highest insular mountain in the United States, containing the highest lake in the country and evidence of glaciation above the 11,000-foot level. Most majestic expression of shield volcanism in the Hawaiian Archipelago, if not the world. Designated an NNL in November of 1972.

Molokai National Natural Landmarks
