Dramatic, diverse, vast and still growing! To best appreciate the volcanoes, plan to spend at least a day exploring the park. Join a tour where you’ll learn about the landscapes that roll out before you and gain insight into the geological and ecological implications of this stunning park. See amazing formations at Kilauea Iki Crater, Rainbow Falls and so much more.
Visit the black sand formed from hardened lava that has been crumbled into tiny particles. This is a popular spot for beachgoers and is also a habitat for honu (turtles). Don’t leave town without visiting the Punalu‘u Bake House. Delicious local treats including malasadas (doughnuts).
North from Hilo, you can see two gorgeous waterfalls in one short walk. A small hike up a hill and you’ll be rewarded with the 30 metre Kahuna Falls. Continue on the loop track to the true gem of the towering ‘Akaka Falls and witness water plunging 135 metres from the cliffs above to the gorge below.
Be amazed by these gentle creatures. Book a manta ray dive or snorkel tour in either Kona or Keauhou Mantas don’t have stingers like sting rays so when they glide past you feeding on microscopic plankton, you can stare in wonder. If staying at the Sheraton Kona Resort you can watch them from the shoreline in the evening or head out on a short boat ride to learn more about them.
Their wide open spaces, dramatic contours and elevation changes make the 18 golf courses here a fantastic challenge. Talk about a tee off with a view! Not to mention the view from the fairway and the green as well! If you play a bad shot, distraction by the scenery is a valid excuse.
Take a ride in either a helicopter or small plane and view some of the most incredibly diverse and interesting landscapes in the world. A bird’s eye view puts the size of the island and all that it offers in true perspective. Experience the fiery lava vents of Hawai‘i Island’s active volcano, Kilauea, then be whisked through the hidden tropical valleys of the Kohala Mountains, alive with dozens of roaring waterfalls and spot beaches that are hidden among black rocks.
