The Hanapepe Swinging Bridge is one of Hanapepe’s most popular attractions. The bridge was originally built in the early 1900’s as way for residents to cross the river. After Hurricane Iniki, it was restored and reinforced, but has since become worn and in need of some repair. Children love this suspension bridge because it rocks and swings and can be a little scary at times. This bridge is the real deal though, and is a much better thrill than those found on the playground.
While in Hanapepe Town visit the unique galleries and shops, or enjoy the festive Art Walk on Friday evenings, where all the galleries are open to view the works of local Kauai Artist.
One note, currently the bridge takes you to the west side of the riverbank where Hanapepe Valley residents live. It is recommended out of respect for these residents that once you reach the other side, to turn back to Hanapepe.
