Beautiful coconut grove on the main highway west of Kaunakakai. It appears they are still harvesting coconuts as evidenced by the piles neatly arranged under the trees. One of the locals told us that Kamehameha V had a house in the coconut grove.

Not much to really see, we actually went past it several times as we did the island. If you have never seen coconuts on a tree, it is interesting.

Loved this park. Took lots of photos of the beautiful palm trees. Do respect the sign suggesting that you be aware of falling coconuts. I looked up occasionally just to be on the safe side.

You can't enter the park anymore, but you can drive down a road to the west of the park and take photos of tons and tons of palm trees and find some fallen coconuts on the ground.

Got to get out here before the sun sets which is about 7p.m. in July. Heard that there used to be more palm trees out here and the views were much better, but the one we saw was just as good. You need to stop your car, get off and wander into the coconut grove. You feel very small amongst... More

This is a small coconut grove right on the highway near Kaunakakai. Nothing really special, but ok for a quick stop if you've never seen one before.

Not as impressive as I thought it would be, nonetheless, it's a quick stop or photo op when traveling on the island, close to town and you can see the pier from there.

Pretty but not allowed to walk into the grove because of falling coconuts. There is a place to park along the side of the grove.

We were able to get there by bicycle. It was an easy ride and the drivers that passed by were courteous. The grove from the outside looks just like a bunch of palm trees in one spot. Then venture in... The things you can find in there are otherworldly. Once through the grove, there is beach access on the other... More

The gate is locked to keep people out of this park. We saw it from the road, it is pretty.
