Behold the inspiring natural beauty of the Big Island and gain an appreciation for the volcanically shaped terrain. At Bay View Farm, which blankets the slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano, you will see how coffee beans are grown, dried, and roasted before tasting a cup of celebrated Kona coffee. The farm overlooks beautiful Kealakekua Bay and the landmark statue that marks the spot where famed British explorer Captain James Cook was killed in 1779. Another look into the island’s history awaits you at the 19th-century Painted Church, whose priest taught islanders religious lessons by painting biblical murals on the walls. Nature’s glory really takes center stage in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where you will walk through a dramatic volcanic landscape that an 1868 eruption left in its wake. The lava that flowed into the ocean eventually created the black sand beach at Punalu’u, an idyllic setting where you may spot Hawaiian green sea turtles basking in the sun.
