Punakea Palms Coconut Farm
Learn everything about this beloved local fruit
What food is more associated with Hawaii than sweet, creamy coconut? At Punakea Palms, a working coconut farm on Maui not far from Lahaina Shores Beach Resort, visitors will get to learn everything there is to know about this beloved fruit. Tours are available by appointment only (so book in advance), and accommodate up to 10 people. During these expert led excursions, you’ll begin in the farm, to learn about natural farming and coconut trees’ life cycles. Next, you’ll get to experience how to open and taste them, at different stages of maturity. Last but not least, you’ll learn how the coconut has played a pivotal role in Hawaiian history and culture – far beyond being a delicious (and nutritious) food.
