Just a fun thing to try in the beautiful town of Hanapepe! The whole town is just a few blocks long if that, but there's a cute little shop across the bridge so you just gotta walk across it!

Beautiful narrow old timber suspension footbridge. Feels a little unsteady when there are a few people using it - but that's all part of the fun.

Fun stop. Walk across wobbly bridge...look at little gift shop for five minutes...walk back to shops on other side by the car. Not life changing but still fun to do, especially with kids
