B/c there's nothing to see here. It's ok to just pass it by as you drive and say you got to see the remnants of the grove.

Coconuts fall from great heights in this sacred grove. There is plenty to see by walking around the perimeter,

Unless I didn't look in the right place, all I could do is drive by and look at slot of coconut trees and dropped coconuts on the ground. Maybe it was closed?

Worth a stop and artsy photographs. It's a well-established pure coconut palm plantation, historic and unique.
