During the area’s most active periods, tourists have the chance of experiencing the thrill of feeling seismic activity, hearing the boom of gas emissions, or even seeing a pillar of ash escaping into the air.

Akaka Falls is the most famous of the Big Island’s waterfalls, and for the right reasons: it’s 442 feet tall! It’s quite easily accessible, so head to this place for a majestic view.

If you want to just sit back, relax and bask in the sun, head to then head to Lanikai Beach, which is just a 30-minute drive from Downtown Honolulu. Lanikai is Hawaiian for Heavenly Sea, and I think that is the perfect way to describe this half-mile stretch of coastal beauty.

Towards the end of the road to Hāna in Maui, there is a beautiful black sand beach called Waianapanapa. The contrast between the thick green fringe of trees, the deep black sand, and the vibrant blue ocean is unique.

On the east side of Maui, the Pools of ‘Ohe’o, or “Seven Sacred Pools,” are a series of small waterfalls and plunge pools fed by a stream running through the rainforest. Not only are the pools popular for swimming and cliff-jumping, but also the scenery is magical.
