Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

— 3 nights
Volcanoes have played an important role in shaping the Earth, and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park shows visitors the process in action.
Step out of the city life by going to Papakōlea Green Sand Beach and South Point Complex. Step off the beaten path and head to Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail and Devastation Trail. Step out of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park with an excursion to Ka Lae in Naalehu--about 1h 30 min away. And it doesn't end there: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, hike along Pu'u Huluhulu trail, tour the pleasant surroundings at Sulphur Banks, and take a memorable drive along Crater Rim Drive.
