Kahana Bay Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Kahana Bay is a scenic tree-lined bay surrounded by steep fluted cliffs of the Koolau Range. The deep bay curves between Mahie Point and Kaluapuleho Point. Kahana Stream flows through the rain-soaked Kahana Valley into the bay, forming historic Huilua Fishpond, a national landmark and popular swimming hole. This hike follows the bay ’s sandy shoreline throughout the eight-acre beach park.

Begin the hike at the center of Kahana Bay in a grove of ironwood trees. Bear to the left (northwest) to a lava rock wall and Kapaeleele Boat Ramp at the west end of the bay. Return to the right and walk east through the shady tree grove to a residential home. Follow the hard-packed sand along the curvature of the shoreline to Huilua Fishpond at the mouth of Kahana Stream."
