THE LEGEND OF THE LIZARD


The true name of Chinaman's Hat is Mokoli'i. It is said to come from an ancient Hawaiian Legend. Here is the condensed version:
The Goddess Hi'iaka was traveling along the windward coast when she came upon the dragon lizard, Mokoli'i. Hi'iaka slayed the giant lizard, cut off it's tail and threw it in the ocean near Kualoa. The small islet is said to be the tip of the tail of poor Mokoli'i.

Lizard tail or Chinaman's Hat, either way, it is a beautiful little offshore islet.
