If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind view on MOLOKA‘I , all you need to fi nd is the lovely bunch of coconut trees. Located on the south shore of Moloka‘i, KAPUĀIWA COCONUT BEACH PARK boasts a stunning sunset view accented by hundreds of majestic palms.
This HISTORIC LANDMARK, one of the largest groves of ROYAL PALM TREES still existing in Hawai‘i was established in the 1860s by King Kamehameha V. He had 1,000 royal coconut palm trees planted to represent each warrior in his army.
You will only be able to view the grove from the outside, in order to keep your head safe from falling coconuts. However, bring a picnic, as the nearby KIOWEA BEACH PARK, just to the west and easily within viewing distance, is a lovely place to catch a view and some rays.
Kapuāiwa Coconut Beach Park is located 1.5 miles east of Kaunakakai on Highway 460. Kapuāiwa Coconut Grove will be on the left, across the street from Church Row.
