Kaneohe Bay is one of the island’s most photographed spots, and is a breeding ground for hammerhead sharks, while a popular local gathering spot is the Kane’one Sandbar, which is a spot for those with boats who also like to barbecue and snorkel. The Byody-In-Temple at the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park is a well-known attraction that was built in the 1960s to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the first Japanese immigrant workers who worked in the sugar plantation fields.
