This State Park Nestled In The Furthest Corner Of Hawaii Is Just Begging To Be Visited
From cascading waterfalls and the inviting turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean to lush rain forests and mountain peaks, breathtaking natural beauty abounds on the Hawaiian Islands. And nowhere will you find more breathtaking scenery than within Hawaii’s incredible state parks. With more than 50 state parks, waysides, recreation areas, monuments, and historic sites scattered across the islands from Kauai to Hawaii Island, there are so many options to choose from. But this secluded spot nestled in the furthest corner of Hawaii is one of our current favorites.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
