The fertile Keanae Peninsula is not only the start of the famous Hana coast, it’s also perfect for taro farming because of the constant rainfall and groundwater from the ocean.  Hawaiian legend says Keanae was the first area to be blessed by the creator god Kane when he thrust his staff into the lava rock to draw water to the area.  Today, the green beauty and thriving taro beds of the Keanae Peninsula bring this legend to life.
