We decided to go to the Manini-holo Dry Cave because it is across the street from Ha'ena Beach. The cave goes back about 150 feet, but was larger before 1957 when a tsunami filled part of it with sand. We went in and my husband...More

While this isn't a major attraction, the dry cave and cliffs are still impressive and easily accessible. Bring a flashlight, it's dark in the back, and watch your head! Right across the street from extensive Haena/Tunnels beach.

On our drive north we visited the dry cave however the wet cave was closed off due to rain/danger. Not worth a stopover of longer than 5 min but cool to walk around inside the dry cave. Watch your head with low ceiling height and...More

Cave entrances vast and visible to the side of the road leading into the State Park, but unclear as to how far they go into the cliff face. At the time of my visit the 'wet' cave was closed off with safety barrier tape. The...More

Visited the dry cave while at Haena Beach - goes back a long way and is pretty cool with a sandy bottom. Park across the street at the beach for safety and walk across.
