We stopped at the Kahanu Garden on our way back from Hana. The view of the ocean is awe inspiring, and we had the place almost to ourselves. We also saw mongooses! (we have been told that the plural is not mongeese) Well worth your time and money.

This garden is the home of Hawaii's largest temple & gardens of medicinal plants. Most plants & trees are identified with names & uses. Buildings housing canoes & cooking/living arrangements allows one to see how early construction of these strong buildings was attained. Pack a picnic lunch to sit and enjoy. There is no food kiosk, but very nice toilet facilities.

We thought the $10 per person was pretty steep considering you can go pretty much right next door into the state park for free. The documentation was nice and we always enjoy learning but I won't recommend my friends visit.

The heiau (huge lava structure) is very impressive. There are labeled plants with history of origin and use. Visit the restrooms! The local high school craft class did the decoration. The wooden doors and mosaic on the walls is spectacular.

I was able to walk around these grounds with a friend that's a native Hawaiian. She was able to tell a little more history on the place, but there are placards around the grounds explaining what you are looking at. This is a very significant historical site for Hawaiian people, with the largest heiau, or place of worship, in the islands.

The views are exceptional and the walk throughout the grounds is very nice. There are a large variety of plants, again with the placards in place to explain what they are.

Expect to take one to two hours to fully enjoy this area. I highly recommend it.
