Conch Shell Blowing

This complimentary activity is offered to guests of all ages interested in the history and use of the Pū, or conch shell.

A cultural history as well as an old legend will be shared by our Beach Alakaʻi to provide the guest with a glance back in time, when the sound of the pū may have signaled the approach of Hawaiian royalty, or the arrival of a voyaging canoe from a far away land. 

Once the basic skills are gained, a contest is held where participants take turns to see who can blow the longest or loudest.  Highest regard is given to the one who can vary the pitch of their blow.
