Neighborhood: Offroad

This beach is also called Kahalepalaoa: the shortened version of the name translates to whale house, while the longer version translates to whale ivory house. In the old days, the Maunalei Sugar Plantation shipped sugar cane from a wharf located on-site, but today only the ruins of the wharf remain. Although the beach is bordered by detritus sand, the area to one side of the old wharf has white sand. This is an ideal place for strolling and sunbathing but not recommended for swimming. This area is accessible by 4x4 vehicle only, weather permitting.
