Kaneohe, meaning “bamboo man” in Hawaiian, got its name from an ancient Hawaiian story in which a woman likened her husband’s cruelty to the sharp edge of cutting bamboo. Kaneohe is one of the two largest residential communities on the windward side, with its commercial center spread mostly along Kamehameha Highway.
Because of the abundance of rainfall in Kaneohe, it was an important agricultural area since ancient times. Today, the area is mostly residential with only bananas grown as a commercial crop.
Places of note: Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden, Hawaii National Veterans Cemetery, and Marine Corps Base Hawaii. In addition, Kaneohe is home to Pali Golf Course, Koolau Golf Club, and Bayview Golf Park.
