Living History

This gorgeous park, the perfect example of the beauty typical of the South Pacific, also has a dark history. In the late 1800s, when the islands were being ravaged by a mysterious disease now known as leprosy, this is where those afflicted were sent to be forcibly segregated and confined. Guided tours are offered through the former settlement, which is still home to a few dwindling residents. Other sites of note within the park include the Kalaupapa Overlook, which has several interpretive exhibits. The number of visitors to the park is limited to 100 per day, and prior arrangements have to be made with the proper park authorities for admission.

Utrip Tips

*No one under the age of 16 is allowed.
*Damien Tours are your best bet for visiting.
*Packing a lunch is a good plan, too.
