Waianapanapa State Park

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by beach_lvr on September 16, 2004

When we first arrived, the first thing we noticed was that we were the only ones there. We could not have picked a more picturesque place to picnic. It was so quiet and, as we walked forward to the eastern edge of the park, we realized how high up upon a cliff we were. It is a looong way down. There are no railguards so enjoy the scenery, but whatever you do, don't lose your balance!

The cliff here overlooks the beautiful royal blue ocean; a stunning site. Everything in this park was lush green, and brightly colored birds abounded - one or two of them hopping onto our table on occasion to join us for lunch. These birds are gentle and will almost eat right out of your hand. A quiet, gentle, naturally beautiful, unforgettable place. You will find a few picnic tables here (most of them in the shade) along with bathrooms, but not much else. This park is located just outside Hana, so it's convenient if you are staying in Hana or making the Road to Hana trip...or perhaps visiting the nearby Seven Sacred Pools.
