Welcome to Haʻena State Park
Pass the botanical garden, cross a bridge over a gushing river and enter Haʻena State Park. Sculpted from the narrow lava-rich coastline, it burns with allure, mystique and beauty. Pele (the Hawaiian goddess of fire) is said to have overlooked the area as a home because of the water percolating through its wet and dry caves. Today this 230-acre park remains home to the 1280ft cliff commonly known in the tourism industry as ʻBali Hai,’ its name in the film South Pacific. Its real name is Makana (‘Gift’). Apt, for sure.
