Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Kick off your visit on the 5th (Mon): stroll through Pu'u Huluhulu trail and then cruise along Devastation Trail. On your second day here, view the masterpieces at Volcano Art Center Gallery and then explore the fascinating underground world of Kaumana Caves Park.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

— 4 nights

Heart of the Kona Coast

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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park and Kona Coffee Living History Farm. Visiting White Sand Beach and Kahaluu Beach will get you outdoors. When in Kailua-Kona, make a side trip to see Big Island Bees in Captain Cook, approximately Captain Cook away. The adventure continues: experience rural life at Hula Daddy Kona Coffee, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mokuaikaua Church, and get a taste of the local shopping with Kona Joe Coffee.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
