We headed out in the morning towards the volcanoes. It was a pretty scenic 2 hours or so drive.
We stopped at Punalu’u Bake Shop that sold some “sweet bread” and it was delicious. We got taro, mango, and guava. We then continued on until we stopped at Volcano Garden Arts to have lunch, but unfortunately the cafe was closed that day.
Afterwards, we decided to go to Punalu’u Black Sand Beach nearby. That beach had some crazy waves! It was fun to walk around. But I didn’t get to see any turtles 🙁
After that we proceeded towards our final destination: VOLCANO (during the day). I must add the view was pretty spectacular as well!
After checking out the museum they also had there, we went and hiked through a rainforest towards a lava tube.
A few hours later, we returned to see the magma glow emanating from the volcano:
As well as went back to the steam vents and saw some pretty cool “creepy” mist emanating off the cliff.
