Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
To find photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Volcano day trip website .

Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
Get outdoors at Wailea Beach Path and Makena Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Kamaole Beach Park III and Lahaina Galleries. Explore Kihei's surroundings by going to Kapalua Beach (in Kapalua), Pakaloha Bikinis (in Paia) and Napili Beach (in Lahaina). There's still lots to do: stroll through Ho'okipa Beach Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Wailea Beach, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
