South Shore, Koloa
Please wait while the slide-show
The Beautiful canopy of Eucalyptus trees line Maluhia Road shades the first mile of highway 520 and creates a natural gateway to Kauai's South Shore, and the towns of Koloa a Poipu. The original 500 trees were planted in 1911 as a gift to the community from Pineapple Baron Walter McBryde. The beautiful trees were leftover from a large landscape project of his estate home, now the grounds of the Kukuiolono Park and Golf Course. The winds that topped 225 mph during Hurricane Iniki stripped these trees down to bare branches, but have made a nice recovery and picturesque tunnel of trees.
