Otherworldly Rocks

The barren landscape at this location truly looks like the surface of another planet, this is really more of a distinctive geographic feature than a cultivated garden. Ask for directions and make sure the four-wheel drive function works on your vehicle before setting off down Polihua Road.

Local legends say that the rocky moonscape was the result of a battle between two powerful priests, one from Molokai and the other from Lanai. The priest from Lanai burned so much vegetation in his fervor that rocks and sand were all that was left. The ideal time to visit is at sunset when the fading light changes the tall red rocks orange and purple.
