A Great Way to Experience the Big Island
Just a 45-minute flight from Oahu you will find yourself on Hawaii’s Big Island. Your arrival, into the middle of a lava field, might almost seem like a moon landing. Lava, now solidified, created the wave-like, rippled fields that spread out almost as far as the eye can see.
Along the western coast of the island, the landscape changes dramatically. There will be a stop at Royal Kona Coffee in the midst of the coffee-growing region. It’s a remarkable place of organic beauty. The lush coffee bean trees seem to spring up among the other island foliage. The area also overlooks Kealakekua Bay, offering spectacular views of its pristine waters.
Soon you’ll be back to lava fields where various shades of solidified lava reveal the entire island’s past volcanic activity. You’ll actually be able to see a distinct dividing line where the lava fields end and the lush farmland begins. While you enjoy the changing landscape, you’ll want to prepare yourself for a visit to the nearby is Punaluu Beach, the amazing black sand beach where sea turtles often nest.
Next you’ll be on your way to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. You’ll begin at the Jaggar Museum and Hawaii Volcano Observatory. Be on the lookout for the active, smoldering crater nearby. Active volcanoes are still present and continuing to add to the landscape of dried lava flow. Here is also where you’ll find Mauna Loa, the world’s largest volcano, and Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano. There’s also Thurston Lava Tube, and located in a small crater, the Fern Tree Jungle. If the conditions are safe, you’ll actually circle a crater when you ride along Crater Rim Drive.
This daylong adventure is the perfect showcase for the Big Island’s most unique sights and locations. It’s a great way to explore this fascinating place.
