We decided to go to the Manini-holo Dry Cave because it is across the street from Ha'ena Beach. The cave goes back about 150 feet, but was larger before 1957 when a tsunami filled part of it with sand. We went in and my husband...More

Not really sure why this is even listed as an attraction. It's more something you walk by and look at briefly when at haena beach park or walking from overflow parking to kee beach. It's worth a few minutes to look at but is more...More
