See Lava from Big Island Volcano Eruption
Kīlauea Volcano continues to erupt at its summit and at the Puʻu ʻŌʻō vent on its East Rift Zone.
In February, a visitor to the Big Island captured breathtaking photos of this lava flow.
“We saw people walking on the coastline to get a peek at the lava site from a distance but they can only go so far.
With a boat we got an exclusive, up-close look at the lava (we were the only boat there).
Words cannot describe how incredible the lava looks in person.
There’s nothing else you’d ever see in this world that’s exactly the same bright, fluorescent, reddish, orange-ish color as 1,600 degrees lava pouring out of Earth and dropping into the ocean.”
Plan a day trip from Sheraton Kona to Hilo on this 45 mile drive to the volcano area.
Along the way explore Hilo Town and Banyan Drive, the waterfalls at Rainbow Falls, a macadamia nut factory, and an orchid and anthurium nursery.
