    Wow. I’ve waited to see Kilauea my entire life and this trip was definitely a bucket list moment for me. I absolutely loved this park. The Volcano House is awesome! The view of the volcano is so cool! If you don’t have a clear view of the volcano, don’t give up! The clouds tend to move quickly.

    I also highly recommend viewing it from multiple viewpoints and trails, especially the steam trail! Seeing the lava flows, lakes, and craters was so extremely cool! The chain of craters road is clean and well maintained and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. We drove down to the sea arch and it was really beautiful. I would love to return someday and do even more hiking and see even more!

    My family and I got super lucky and were able to summit Mauna Kea during perfect weather conditions. The other travelers are absolutely right, you need to bundle up because it is extremely cold, even if the winds aren't very strong. If you're from flat land like us, I really recommend waiting at the visitor center for more than 30 minutes, minimum an hour. Just take your time going up and coming down and you'll be okay. Make sure you have water and food too!

    What a gem. It’s a must do. Absolutely stunning plants. The blooms don’t look real they’re so pretty and exotic. And it’s set up to look as of it’s been there forever, not just planted. Several beautiful waterfalls that are straight out of pictures. Nice walking surface. Parts are fairly steep, ends up down by the ocean with so many picture spots.

    This pace was obviously very beautiful but be forewarned that it is quite a hike with LOTS of stairs. If you have an injury, it will be difficult. Not impossible as I did it with a hurt knee but I wish I would have known this ahead of time.

    Great beach! Easy access. No trouble parking. Has restrooms and foot rinse faucet. You can spend hours here. Use sunscreen!

    Incredible walk! Birds and Tree Ferns every where. And you might get lucky to time the volcano eruptions in the distance.

    Steve was fantastic, the tour was very informative, the ice cream was a must try, the body butter is wonderful, and we came home with some vanilla beans. Great activity to do!

    Really nice beach that has been improved over the past few years. Access and shower area are fairly new. There was a lifeguard on site as the waves were pretty high. If you go early in the morning its not crowded but by 11am or so quite a few people are there and parking is at a premium. Saw some dolphins and a turtle.

    Very interesting tour. Learned so much about how coffee is made. Fun to do some coffee tasting and you can't beat the scenery!

    My family and I enjoyed learning the history of the Hawaiian people here and touring the grounds. It’s a nice park and very well maintained. Clean and quiet. Make sure you watch the film by the visitors center and grab yourself a map to learn more.

    My husband and I have dreamt of seeing a black sand beach our entire lives and this place was a great first black sand beach. It was very easy to get to and had a decent amount of parking. The beach was very clean and wasn't as busy as I thought it would be. Seeing the sea turtles was so cool! We walked the entire beach, just know that some of it can be rocky and hurt your feet. Also the bathrooms are not great.

    The sound bath with Brooke was amazing. Listening to the birds singing and Brooke playing her instruments puts you in another space. We will be back.
