Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
You simply cannot come to the Big Island and leave without first spending time within the very famous and quite unique Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, although do be sure to set aside an entire day.
The landscape here comprises everything from tropical sandy beachfronts, to the sunken crater of the Kilauea Volcano, which is known as the Kilauea Caldera and is actually still active, regularly steaming and easily viewed from the Crater Rim Drive, being around 3 km / 2 miles in diameter. The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is also home to the Mauna Loa, which at around 4,175 metres / 13,700 feet high, is the biggest volcano in existence and a favourite Hawaiian landmark. If you have time, check out the 550-year-old Thurston Lava Tube, and take a drive along the Chain of Craters Road.
