Kalaupapa Peninsula Travel Guide

Kalaupapa Peninsula

The most remote area in the entire Hawaiian Islands is a place of stunning natural beauty coupled with a tragic past. It’s here that residents of Hawaii who displayed symptoms of Hansen’s disease (formerly known as leprosy) were permanently exiled beginning in 1866. Today, the peninsula is still isolated—it’s accessible only by air, on foot, or on a mule. But a day spent here is, without a doubt, a profound, once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Disputes continue between the land owner and the Kalaupapa Guided Mule Tour company. Call in advance to verify times and make reservations.
