Hawaii’s volcanic activity creates a dynamic array of beaches ranging from soft white shores to the black pebbles of the Big Island’s Punaluʻu Black Sand Beach. But, travelers aren’t the only visitors to Punaluʻu; the area is known for the large green sea turtles (honu) that come out to bask along the black sand shoreline.

Experiencing the Big Island
I’m from Alabama so every stop I experienced a new adventure. The water falls, tube, the black sand beach, the National Park, volcanoes and the food. The scenic view was breathtaking. The tour took us around the entire island so we experienced so many climates in one day. The waterfalls were amazing and peaceful. The Hilo downtown was very a great history lesson. The Volcano was amazing because I was actually looking at an active volcano. Standing over the steam was like a chemistry lesson up close and personally. I’m 62years old and I will never forget how excited I was to take the tour and how that experience will last me for a lifetime. Our tour guide Dominique was awesome. He was so personal and very knowledgeable about the island. I learned so much about Hawaii from him.

Awesome day full of adventures!
Jodi was a great tour guide! We saw so many sights and she answered all my kids (7 and 9) questions. The Volcano national park and the lava tube were some of our favorite sites. Also loved the rainbow falls. Glad we decided to do this.
