Winding through one of the least tamed areas of Na ‘Āina Kai, a gently sloping path descends
to the ocean alongside Kuliha’ili stream. Here, beneath the shadowy rainforest canopy, ferns, bamboo and spongy
mosses abound. So, too, do heliconias, gingers, noni, and ornamental bananas. There are even chocolate trees,
nutmeg and cinnamon trees, cardamom, ginger and vanilla vines to spark your culinary imagination. Listen closely to hear
the songs and calls of indigenous or exotic song birds such as the white-rumped shama (one of the most gifted songbirds
on the planet).
