It really does look like a recliner chair, but only from certain angles.
It’s possible to climb Pele’s Chair, but it’s really not recommended and the views aren’t much different. It’s a long way down on the rocky shore side.
On one side of the chair is a beautiful little inlet and small beach, known as Alan Davis Beach due to a former landowner.
The inlet has a small traditional Hawaiian fishpond constructed with rock walls, and there are lots of trails to explore on the other side.
