Beautiful Kahana Bay as seen from the mauka trail, which was once a Hawaiian farming and fishing community. The rainfall and rich soil on this windward Oahu spot grows food and plants well. Below, the bay provides fish and other seafood. In all, this slice of the island was a productive ahupua’a (Hawaiian land division).
This beach, and its accompanying beach park are still known for fishing and relaxed enjoyment. They are a bit off the beaten path and so have limited facilities and not as many visitors as some other popular spots around the island.
