Kaumahina State Wayside Park

Kaumahina State Wayside Park | Road to HanaThe Park

This state park is one of the first big stops on the Road to Hana. You might appreciate stretching your legs along their spacious 7.8 acres. One of the favorite aspects for most who stop here is the bathrooms! As there aren't too many genuine bathroom breaks, make sure to take advantage of this one!


And if you are in an adventurous mood, feel free to attempt their "hiking" trail. As we quickly found out, the trail isn't well-maintained or easily accessible. However, there are dozens of native Hawaiian plants and birds there that make this experience worth trying!

Make sure to bring a pair of binoculars and a camera, because the scenic coastal view is one for the scrapbook! During whale season, you might even get a free whale sighting!


There are a few picnic tables that are usually vacant. As this is an earlier stop on the Road to Hana, most people aren't ready to pull out their lunch quite yet. So, if you feel like taking your time and exploring, you'll probably have plenty of space!

We recognize the use of diacritical markings of the (modern) Hawaiian language including the ʻokina [ʻ] or glottal stop and the kahakō [ō] or macron (e.g., in place names of Hawaiʻi such as Lānaʻi). However, you may notice these diacritical markings have been omitted on some parts of this website to ensure the best online experience for our visitors. We recognizes the importance of using these markings to preserve the language and culture of Hawaii and respectfully uses them in all communications beyond the online platform.
