Located between Kahului airport and downtown Kahului, the Kanaha Pond State Wildlife Sanctuary is an excellent spot for holiday lovers who wish to get close to the Nature. The popular waterfowl sanctuary is spread across an area of 143 acres and is abode to three beautiful Hawaiian bird species, which are – Hawaiian Coot, Hawaiian Stilt, and Hawaiian Duck. Sadly, all of them are now on the list of endangered species. It was during the 1500’s when the royal fishpond was built by a chief of Molokai and Oahu. In the present time, the waterfowl sanctuary is home to more than fifty types of birds. Among them are plovers, doves, herons, owls, gallinules, geese, tattlers, sandpipers and many more.

Winter season is said to be the best time to visit the Kanaha Pond State Wildlife Sanctuary as migratory birds from different regions of the world stop here to migrate and breed. Admission to the Kanaha Pond State Wildlife Sanctuary is free but fishing and swimming are not allowed. You can reach the pond through a paved walkway built at the southern side of the refuge. This is also a great spot to observe birds of a wide range of species.
