Not much more to say. Beautiful scenery and not too crowded. We walked along the levee on the opposite side of the river from the downtown.

Not worth a detour but worth visiting if you are in the town. Oddly, starting from town it is far from obvious that there is a real bridge there crossing a quite wide waterway

This is a nice quick stop to see the historic swinging bridge. You can walk across it. There is parking nearby as well as down the street. It is also worth checking or some of the shops nearby.

On the outskirts of the historic town of Hanapepe, the swinging bridge is a must-do experience. It is very safe and you will enjoy the slight motion as you walk across and back over the bridge.

Great find in a ol’ historic village. Enjoyed walking across this wobbly but safe bridge. Costs nothing too 😊

the swinging bridge is an interesting attraction once you are in the area of Hanapepe, if you go over there is also a nice souvenir shop with great photos to sell

I love bridges and this little attraction was so fun to stumble upon and I ended up up getting one of my best sunset pictures reflecting off the water from the middle of the bridge! Great seal town!
