One of the most popular visitor attractions in Hawai‘i, Dole Plantation is located past the small community of Wahiawā and a few miles before the surf town of Hale‘iwa. It’s a little oasis of greenery with towering trees, a garden, the Pineapple Express Train and the three-acre Pineapple Garden Maze crafted by 14,000 colorful Hawaiian plants.
There’s something for everyone—young keiki will love riding the train, which features audio narration about the pineapple and agriculture industry along with music by local recording artists, Manoa DNA. Young adults will want to make their way through the maze, recognized in 2008 by Guinness World Records as the world’s largest. And older adults will enjoy the Plantation Garden, a self-guided tour that tells the story of O‘ahu’s plantation days, which played a huge role in shaping our island’s culture.
When hunger hits, you’ll want to stop at the Plantation Grille for local favorites, burgers, salads and more—and, of course, you can’t leave without trying the world-famous Dole Whip! Perfect for a hot day under the sun! Merchandise and souvenirs are also available in the gift shop.
