A natural sea cave with a collapsed roof within Kupalaha Heiau. Twenty years ago, a older resident of Kohala commented that the collapsed roof of this cave was just a small opening in his youth. The name is spelled differently in different sources. If it is Kupalaha, then the name is identical to that of the heiau for the sun, located where the bandstand is now at Kapiʻolani Park, Waikīkī.
