  • We saw people who either moved here or are island natives walking dogs and doing their morning running, bahhhh nothing to do we left not recommended.  more »
  • Great walk for you and your family and dog. Yes, I'm careful to keep my 4-legged girl on a short leash so as not to disturb or freak out the bird life. Not a problem. Love this walk.  more »
  • Kawai Nui Marsh is the preeminent rare wetlands. A special place, but not enough to bother to access and once a stop is a good place.

  • A nice short walk with plenty of bird life to watch, and an easy to traverse path
  • Nice spot for a walk, best when the sun isn't shining directly overhead.
  • A great place to get back in touch with nature. An easy stroll along the marsh offers scenic views of the Koolau mountains and many types of water birds. The trail is paved and flat with no elevation gain so it's perfect for beginners and parents with strollers to bring along the keiki. There's a good sized parking lot and easy access to the trail. My only criticism and reason for the four stars is there's no permanent bathrooms, just two portapotties. At the start of the trail there's a garden with native plants with accompanying descriptive signage. Best times to go are early mornings or early evenings as there's no tree cover so it can get hot. Bring along some bread to feed the ducks and fishes and your all set to go! Have fun!
  • Personally I hate it and here's why. At one end of the marsh is the only sanctioned model airplane field. They're isn't even a runway and on three sides is the marsh. Even a good pilot can have failure with his plans whether it's electrical or otherwise. But the marsh is home to many airplane models and at the average price of an airplane being around $180 that makes it a very expensive hobby. The Buffalo has around the field can host over 7'and can get overwhelming when trying to find your most aircraft.
  • Amazing with pleasent people doing what they love!
