The One State Park In Hawaii That Looks Like It Was Ripped From The Pages Of Your Favorite Fairytale

Maui’s Road to Hana is home to countless incredible viewpoints, parks, waterfalls, and hidden gems, and I’m honestly not sure how you could complete this drive without stopping to witness something gorgeous every twenty minutes — or less. While many of these stops take no time at all, Waianapanapa State Park is different. It is perhaps the one place that should be explored as much as possible.

You see, this little sliver of paradise is home to every enchanting natural wonder you could think of, including striking black sand beach, sea caves, freshwater pools, a blowhole, and cascading waterfalls. This is Waianapanapa State Park, and it looks as though it was ripped straight from the pages of your favorite fairytale.

To make the most out of your trip to Waianapanapa, we urge you to consider applying for a camping permit and pitching a tent overnight or staying in one of the park’s cabins. This way, you won’t be tempted to make a short stop in an attempt to make it to Hana before sundown. Click here for more information about this slice of paradise hiding in plain sight.
