Located eight miles south of Hana and one mile south of the Ohe'o Gulch on the makai side of Highway 31 is the Palapala Ho'omau Church.

A narrow road around mile marker 41 leads to the church. A small sign pointing left which says Limited Parking is tacked on the side of a tree marking the road. Many people miss this spot, but if you keep an eye out for it, you won't be one of them. It's definitely worth a stop if time allows. The famous aviator, Charles Lindbergh, lies at rest on the tranquil church grounds. Lindbergh died on August 26, 1974 after living his last days on the bountiful Hana coast. Shortly before he died he sketched out a simple design for his grave and coffin.

The church was built in 1857 and is actually made out of limestone coral. Lindbergh's grave is located behind the church under the shade of a Java plum tree. We feel the most beautiful part of this spot is the surrounding scenery. The coastal views down beyond the grave site and gardens are exquisite.
