  • We enjoy the scenic walking trail and the care that’s given to each of the sections. You can adopt a garden. There also are several volunteers that volunteer to take care of the large feral cat...

  • This unique area gives you access to the ocean with some sand on the beach. It has restrooms and the views are spectacular! Gave us a chance to wade into some of the titles and check out the sea...

  • I love this place its so relaxing. You truly get the opportunity to meet many locals of the island and I am speaking of native Hawaiians and the many residents who have now made Hawaii their home. Its very peaceful and you can get a pure and clear mind frame of the true essence of Hawaii and ones self. If you need answers on your personal quest of completeness you will achieve this here if you allow yourself to do so.
  • This is my favorite place for walks along the beach. It's really pretty with white sand and some pahoehoe lava swirls that form interesting tide pools. There is plenty of free parking and you won't find a lot of tourists here, just friendly locals relaxing. You will also find a paved walking loop nearby that will take you to an extremely vibrant cactus garden and other cute garden plots maintained by different people from the community.
