The life story of aviation pilot Charles Lindbergh is one so rich that not even Hollywood could come up with a more fascinating tale. Lindbergh was the first pilot to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. He was much more than a skilled airline pilot though, as he was also a social activist, military officer, explorer, inventor, husband and father. The Lindbergh family spiraled into infamy due to the mysterious kidnapping and murder of their baby son, which was dubbed "the crime of the century."
After living a full life, Charles Lindbergh decided to spend his finally years in the serene and peaceful coastal area of Hana, Hawaii. He died of cancer on August 26, 1974 at the age of 72.
A trip to his simple yet stunning grave is certainly worth a visit. It is located at the Palapala Ho'omau Church which is eight miles south of Hana and just one mile south of the Ohe'o Gulch. The grave is located just outside the quaint little church-which is also worth walking through. Kihalu Point is a two minute walk away and offers stunning views of the sea.
