Hanapepe Village

Meaning "Crushed Bay", this little town was quite littery crushed during the hurricane of '92.Β  On the South shore of Kaui'i, the town was started by Chinese rice farmers in the 1800s and mostly associated with bar brawls.Β  Films such as The Thorn Birds and Jurassic Park were filmed in the village or in the nearby Hanapepe Valley.Β  The Hanapepe Swinging Bridge is one of the tourist attractions of the village (rebulit after '92), but the town appears to be mostly deserted now, save for a few art galleries and gift shops.

When we arrived there on Dec 26, everything was still closed for Christmas. It seemed likeΒ  a ghost town.
