After driving the road to Hana I was so pleased to get here and stretch my legs. This is an easy walk around a beautiful area with lots of history. Pay the small fee at the enterence and get the little book that will tell you about all the different items in the Garden. My kids who are 11,11 and... More

The Keanu Gardens were a nice stop on the Road to Hana and a great opportunity to take a quiet walk away from the crowds. It also has some beautiful examples of indigenous and Polynesian-introduced plants and lovely coconut groves. It has some wonderful shoreline views. $10/person, it takes about 20-40 minutes to walk around depending on how fast you... More

Don't let being somewhat off the beaten path deter you from experiencing this powerful sacred site run by indigenous people. It is the largest Heiau, (traditional Hawaiian temple) in all Hawaii with a tremendous history both in its origins and recent past. Have you heard the word, "Mana"? This is where you will feel it surrounded by the ancient presence... More

Few flowers, for example), but a collection of Hawaiian plants, like that used to make poi. But it does have the largest ancient Hawaiian temple in all of Hawaii. And they will tell you not to go to the coast - too dangerous - but do. Dramatic high waves pounding the black lava coast. More dramatic than Wainapanapa.

We really wanted to go there to see the temple, which is pretty impressive in size. We didn't want to climb on the structure (you're not allowed to anyway), but I feel like we missed out on some of the grandeur by not being able to see it from a higher vantage point. The book provided for the self-guided tour... More

I really enjoyed our visit to Kahanu Garden. The temple was breathtaking in it's size and the setting was transporting. It's not a comprehensive botanical garden but an interesting way to spend an hour. Is it a "must see"...it depends on the individual but my visit there has stuck with me.

This is a beautiful spot, well worth the entrance fee & 90 minutes of your time to walk around. The highlight was definitely the Pi'ilanihale Heiau, but we also enjoyed just wandering around on the bright green grass & looking at the plants & trees, as well as the buildings & coconut grove. It's a very peaceful spot & you... More

I put 2 stars because you have to rate it but I didn't actually go in because it was closed. We went during their posted business hours, and the sign out front on the beginning of the road said closed but since it was supposed to be open, we went down the road. It had been raining and the road... More

This is definitely the best garden & historical spot on Maui. It is a beautiful spot to stretch your legs & soak up some Hana.

It is definitely worth stopping if you have time on the way to Hana or back (I think it closes around 4pm?) but it's not something amazing as I thought. Looks much more cool from the sky I think (based on pics).
