From the pier you'll head to the 'wild west' town of Pahoa with its boardwalks, and Lava Tree State Park with its towering trees, on the eastern rift zone of Kilauea Volcano. Visit Ahalanui’s warm springs, with its volcanically heated water. Along the way and during brief stops, view the dramatic and beautiful scenery formed when lava meets the sea: cliffs, lava tubes and blow holes.
At Kaimu, once the site of a famous black-sand beach and a small town, both destroyed by a 1990 lava flow, a stop is made where you can walk on the 'frozen fire' and view the active volcanic vent in the distance. Visit a survivor of the eruption, Uncle Robert's Hawaiian Village with a nearby snack shop where you can make purchases. View a picture exhibit of the area you just walked on and see how it looked prior to the 1990 lava flow.
