Volcano

Volcano ©
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Papakōlea Green Sand Beach has been added to your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Akaka Falls State Park and Rainbow Falls. Go for a jaunt from Volcano to Pahala to see Punalu‘U Beach about 38 minutes away. The adventure continues: hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, contemplate the geological forces at Kīlauea, and take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku).

Dominated by the large volcano that looms in its background, Kohala Coast offers a quieter and less tourist-ridden alternative to the busier regions of Hawaii.

Step out of Kohala Coast to go to Honokaa and see Waipiʻo Valley Lookout, which is approximately 42 minutes away. There's more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve.

Kailua-Kona

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.

Keep things going the next day: get interesting insight from Tours, then experience rural life at Greenwell Farms, and then explore the wealth of natural beauty at Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park.
