  • Fun walk across the river from Hanapepe main street to an art shop on the other side of the water. Not scary! If you've crossed a suspension bridge, this is easier and less rocky. Try it!  more »

  • This is a must see! Very cool and not many people. This is a must on the list if you are in the south end for any reason. Well taken care of. You will enjoy this experience.
  • Fun swinging bridge over a beautiful river with nice view. A stop in the Aloha Spices gift shop makes it all around worth the trip!
  • Had the bridge all to ourselves on a Saturday, midday. It was fun to walk across, and the little town of Hanapepe was cute! Don't miss a trip into Aloha Spice Company next to the bridge entrance.
  • Couldn't stop giggling -- lots of fun! This bridge was initially built in 1911, then re-built after the hurricane hit Kauai. Follow the signs through town to find the bridge. It offers a bit of free entertainment good for families, and a fun photo op.
  • The sign says don't swing the bridge. So, of course, we did (not TOO much!). A fast walking pace will get the bridge swinging nicely. Free fun!
