It is not worth making a special trip to Hanapepe to see the swinging bridge, but if you are in Hanapepe for the Friday Art Night then it is worth walking across it. It seems to be included in a lot of YouTube videos about Kauai and the experience doesn't match up with the hype.

Was worth the quick stop in Hanapepe to walk across this swinging bridge. Spent an hour walking around the cute shops in Hanapepe, the home of Lilo and Stitch.

It’s cute. If you’re in the town of Hanapepe, definitely visit. Wouldn’t recommend going out of your way for it, however. Could be scary for those with fear of heights, or vertigo. Otherwise, a mild activity.

We ended up in historic old Hanapepe while waiting for a restaurant to open for dinner. In the meantime, we wandered and found the old bridge. It is a one directional bridge, so you need to wait while people choose to go one direction or the other. Also, no more than 15 people on it at a time, although it bounced plenty with just 4 or so of us on it.

Cool experience that we just stumbled upon. If you happen to be close then this is a fun stop. They indicate a maximum of 15 people, but we were fortunate not many people were around.

We’d read this wasn’t worth the trip….so true. We didn’t make a special trip to see this we were actually passing thru Hanapepe so we stopped to see the bridge. But do not make a special trip for this.

During our visit to Hanapepe, we noticed this swinging bridge that spans the local river. The bridge was originally built in the early 1900’s, but it’s been maintained and repaired over the years. Having been around for so long, there’s a bit of history to the bridge. However, besides being an interesting stop and a nice view over the river, there’s not much more to it. Worth checking out if you’re in the area, but I wouldn’t make a special trip.

Took the local bus to Swinging Bridge, really nothing there, just an old bridge and a few stores n galleries. I would not waste my time. I like the suspension bridge at Cataract Gorge in Launceston, Tasmania. Lovely.
Yes, you can take the bus here but local bus will make a loop to town before dropping you off at the West Pharmacy(where you get off). To catch a return bus, you need to cross the stress and catch the bus (opposite route) to get back to downtown Kauai. Kauai is beautiful but most hotel and food are expensive. Once is good.

I had high hopes to visit this little bridge unfortunately we could only stand to the side and view. There were so many people standing in the middle viewing the water we didn’t have time to wait. * 15 people max allowed at one time. Maybe next time-
