If you had to name the one thing the Big Island is most famous for, it would undoubtedly be Kilauea Volcano. Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park is the most fascinating place you may ever visit.
Kilauea Volcano is what the Big Island is most famous for. The most active volcano in Hawaii and likely the world, it is also the most accessible. It is a fascinating display of the forces that have shaped our world. In fact, the volcano continues to create new land, sometimes dramatically threatening or destroying communities in the process.
In famous Volcanoes National Park, natural wonders abound, including lava tubes, vast craters, steaming vents, lush rainforest with exotic flora, and more. The climax for many is seeing lava with their own eyes, either outside the Park getting within feet of lava flowing from Puʻu ʻŌʻō Cone or in the Park viewing the bubbling lava within Halema’uma’u Crater.
