About the Islet Lehua in Hawaii

Information about the small islet of Lehua that is situated off of Niihau island in Hawaii. Lehua was one of first five Hawaiian islands sighted by Captain James Cook in 1778. In his journals he spelled the island's name "Oreehoua". Lehua has an unusual geological formation informally named "the keyhole" that is located in one of the crescent-shaped island's narrow arms. The Keyhole is a tall, thin notch cut from one side of the arm that extends through to the other side of the arm. Lehua is a state of Hawaii wildlife sanctuary and therefore access to the island is strictly limited.
