Puna Coast

Black lava coves, palm trees, and pounding surf mark this ruggedly beautiful shoreline just east of Hawai‘i Volcanoes N.P. Drive to the Kalapana Lava Viewing Area at the end of State 130, and you may see Kilauea’s current eruption pushing molten lava into the sea. Viewing sites change, so check before you go (nps.gov/havo/planyourvisit or 808/985-6000).
