Wai'anapanapa State Park, Hana

4.8
Waves crash along the rocky shore at Wai'anapanapa State Park, home to a multitude of freshwater pools and streams in addition to lush Hawaiian vegetation. You can find the park at the end of a road of the same name, just off of Maui's famous Hana Highway. Explore its rocks, formations, and tubes created over thousands of years of geological activity, as well as the nearby blowholes that can blast sea water high into the air. The black sand beach harkens to the area's volcanic heritage, and you can admire and even dip your feet into the blue waters of the Pacific. Keep your eyes open for some of the island's population of nesting seabirds that frequent the park and the surrounding landscape. If you'd like to plan an extended stay, check out the park's camping facilities.
