Kapuaiwa Coconut Grove

Once a royal coconut grove for Kamehameha V, now a great place to watch the sunset

One of Molokai’s most recognizable landmarks, Kapuaiwa was planted in the 1860s for King Kamehameha V. It was originally covered with more than a thousand coco palms on about 10 acres of beachfront land, but the remaining several hundred — one of the few remaining royal coconut groves in Hawaii — are still an impressive sight. Tip: Watch the sunset from this area for a spectacular view.
