Construction of the Kealia Coastal Boardwalk along North Kihei Road (Highway 31) is complete. This 2,200-foot boardwalk and kiosk with self-guided interpretive exhibits will provide visitors an opportunity to learn about wetlands and their wildlife inhabitants. At this time, we are waiting for completion of the parking area.
Fall and winter provide the best viewing, and visitors may walk cleared paths along the dikes of the old aquaculture facility to access the main body of Kealia Pond. Hawaiian stilt, Hawaiian coot, and black-crowned night heron are the most commonly observed native waterbirds. Staff can provide brochures describing the native Hawaiian waterbirds and migrants one can see in and around the old fish farm impoundments.
Kealia Pond Refuge welcomes visitors at the refuge headquarters, located on the site of an old aquaculture facility at milepost 6 of Mokulele Highway (Highway 311). The office is open 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
