    Look into and beyond the Lava rock...

    by jelw Written Nov 26, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    and you will see so many treasures you might otherwise have missed.
    When hiking on the Islands many people see what look like fields of lava, they turn and go a different direction. They seem to dismiss this as part of the wonder of Hawaii. Without lava there is no Hawaii.

    The rock gives way to the jungle It embraces the water It exposes blow holes and falls and the ocean reclaims it

    Princess' Chair in Waianapanapa State Park.
    Fresh Water cave, you dive in and if the water level is too high you have to swim 'under' to get into the cave...there is an amazing story to the cave as well.

    MaKenna and Little Makenna...

    MaKenna and Little Makenna Beach.
    Both are beautiful. To get to little MaKenna you need to walk to the far right of Makenna beach and climb over the ridge, you will see people climbing. It's an easy climb. Little MaKenna is a nude beach.

    This is where we saw a whale breach out of the water, it was amazing. The waters are beautiful here!

    Kahanu Gardens

    by briantravelman Written Jan 12, 2014

    About 5 miles outside of Hana, lie the Kahanu Gardens, the site of the largest and best preserved heiau in Hawaii. All that remains of most heiaus is the foundation, so a complete heiau is a rare site, and a definite must see. You can also see the ruins of some other heiaus, along with traditional palapas, native fauna, lava fields, and nice views of the Pacific Ocean.
    The main reason we visited these gardens were for the heiaus, but the gardens are also nice.
    The garden is only 3 acres, so you can walk it in about 30 minutes.
    It's worth a stop if you're visiting the areas around Hana.

    You can take a tour, or explore the gardens on your own. Check website below for tour info.

    Hana Culture Center

    by briantravelman Written Jan 12, 2014

    The Hana Cultural Center, celebrates the region's cultural history. The huts and items here are not replica. Everything you see here is original, and was actually used by the ancient Hawaiians.
    This is a good place to visit if you want to learn about the life of ancient Hawaiians. All the exhbits have detailed explinations, stating what they were.
    I really enjoyed this museum.

    Hours of Operation:
    Monday - Friday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
    There is a $3 fee to visit the museum.

    You can actually walk down to the blowhole and experience it's power! Don't get too close! There are actually people who, for a living, go into the blow holes! Timing is everything!
