Ancient Hawaiians once thrived in Kahana due to the abundance of fresh water. The valley boasts a large assortment of Hawaiian cultural sites including taro ponds, irrigation ditches and heiau’s. Early Hawaiians were the first in the world to establish marine aqua culture. The ruins of an ancient fish pond still exist at Kahana for those wishing to explore it.
Kahana offers some of Oahu’s finest wildlife habitat. Birds and fish call the river home. Turtles can be seen in the waters around Kahana Bay. The occasional monk seal can be found basking on the sands. Sometime dolphins will enter the bay. In the winter months Hump Back whales are present off shore and can be seen from the kayaks.
Kahana Bay is located on the Oahu’s eastern shore where the gentle trade winds blow onto the beach most of the year. On the beach is a well established iron wood grove that provides protective shade from the hot summer sun. The breeze combined with the shady grove offers the coolest temperatures during the hot summer months.
