Kapuaiwa Coconut Grove / Kiowea Park


Kapuaiwa Coconut Grove is located in Kapuaiwa Coconut Beach Park and Kiowea Park. It is found on Kaunakakai Molokai, Hawaii. The site is a historic coconut grove just across from Church Row. Kapuaiwa Coconut Beach Park represents the coconut grove which was planted in the 1860s. It is considered an ancient Hawaiian Grove. It was planted during King Kamehameha V's reign. There are hundreds of coconut palm trees in the grove. It is the most notable natural landmark for the Island of Molokai.

The grove can be slightly dangerous due to falling coconuts, which is why it is safer to view it from the Kiowea Beach Park rather than going into the grove. It is considered one of the best places to watch the sunset and it is one of the last Royal coconut groves in the Island chain.

It should be mentioned that Molokai has many private locations like the oldest Heiau. It is considered to be a private island, thus one has to ask permission to visit, even the old coconut grove or the Heiau. The grove is located in central Molokai, which tends to receive visitors more often than other sections of the island.
