Descent

The Maniniholo Dry Cave in Wainiha, Hawaii (Kauai) is an easy 0.1-mile out-and-back walk that leads from Ha'ena Beach to a large sea cave.

This is not a hike, but rather a short walk that leads about 100-feet into a wide sea cave located on a mountainside south of Ha'ena Beach. Please keep off of the Hawaiian Stone Wall located on the outside of the cave as stated by the signs.

Parking
Visitors will find parking at the coordinates provided at Ha'ena Beach, but the lot is large enough to fit just over a dozen vehicles and the lot fills up quickly. There's not much street parking and due to the over-popular scenery (and reservations required) at the nearby Ke'e Beach - illegal street parking fines are as high as $200 here.

Pets
Dogs are allowed if leashed and must be cleaned up after. Dogs are not allowed within the Ha'ena Beach park however.

Respecting the Land
Hawaiian land is considered sacred to native Hawaiians and many locals, so please stay on-trail, take nothing but photos, and leave nothing but footprints. Respect the locals - don't stay for long and have a backup hike planned in case the parking lot is full.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
