ACCESSIBLE ATTRACTIONS

Diamond Head

Visit the famous Diamond Head volcanic cone. We leave it up to you. Keep in mind that only the information area, the bathroom, the car park, and the first 320 meters of the trail are accessible. According to the State Parks Division website, the climb to the summit is steep and has stairs. Also, non-residents must book tickets in advance.

The beautiful Hanauma Bay is just a 20-minute ride away, an ancient volcanic crater that boasts a pure marine ecosystem. Visitors using wheelchairs can use the tram service, as it is included in the entrance fee. Amphibious chairs are also available to enjoy the beach.

Next, you can also drive to Kailua and take a dip in its turquoise waters. The accessible beach has all-terrain wheelchairs (must be reserved in advance) and access mats.

Kauai

Travel to Kauai, occasionally called the “Garden Island ” for its beautiful tropical forests. There we suggest you see Opaeka’a Falls. Visitors have a viewing area from the car, as there is no hiking trail due to the dangerous environment.

From your vehicle you also have the option to see Wailua Falls. We leave it to your discretion which one to visit.

After a half-hour drive along the coast, you’ll arrive at the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge. There are two parking spaces reserved for people with reduced mobility. In addition, the seabird sanctuary website provides the contact telephone number to consult more information about accessibility.

The famous K. Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse, built in 1913, has a paved path that can be navigated by a wheelchair. From there you will get spectacular views of the northern end of the island.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is home to the world’s most active volcanoes, Kilauea and Mauna Loa. Due to its natural value, it has been declared a Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Being a wild environment, there may be certain barriers. However, the park staff works so that the maximum number of visitors can enjoy it.

The Kilauea Visitor Center, the Volcano House, and the Volcano Art Center are all accessible. Likewise, the National Park Service indicates the following information:

  • Part of the Ha’akulamanu Trail (Sulphur Banks) is accessible to wheelchair users. Start from the Steam Vents parking lot.
  • There is a short gravel trail to Wahinekapu (Steaming Bluff).
  • The Kīlauea Overlook can be reached via a short paved road from the parking area.
  • The Devastation Trail can be transited with assistance.
  • There are accessible public restrooms at different points in the park.
