One of the biggest attractions of the park is most certainly the view of the lava lake visible from Kīlauea Overlook, which is best viewed during or after sunset. During the day, you’ll only be able to see dense smoke, but with the dying light, the bubbling lava is much more visible. Meanwhile, you can go through the short trek Kīlauea Iki Trailhead, which will lead you to the collapsed crater of an extinct volcano, where visitors can admire the hardened lava. Not very far is located the lava tunnel called Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), through which molten lava used to flow underground. On the way, you can admire the beautiful views of the surrounding area. When you reach the seashore, make sure to admire the Holei Sea Arch, which are large arcs created by lava. You’ll get a taste of history when seeing the glyphs engraved into the lava stones, Pu`u Loa Petroglyphs, which were left there by the natives. Who would like to know more about the volcanic park can visit the very interesting interactive museum. And the greatest experience is, of course, seeing the streams of molten lava flowing into the cool waters of the ocean. There are several ways how to see this unique phenomenon, but the best way is from a boat.
