Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Step off the beaten path and head to Zipline and Kilauea Iki Trailhead. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Kona Joe Coffee and Volcano Garden Arts. Change things up with these side-trips from Volcano: Kealakekua (The Original Donkey Ball Store, Greenwell Farms, & more), South Point (Ka Lae) and Green Sand Beach (in Naalehu) and Kealakekua Bay (in Captain Cook). There's much more to do: immerse yourself in nature at Punaluu Black Sand Beach, take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens, and see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum.

To see where to stay and other tourist information, go to the Volcano trip itinerary planning app .
