Overview
Get an overview of the Big Island on this tour that packs the island's best attractions into just one day. In a small group of no more than 13, journey through Kona coffee country, along the rugged Kona coastline. Visit macadamia nut orchards, walk along the world-famous Punalu'u black sand beach, and admire the lava tubes, steam vents, and views of the world's most active volcano, Kilauea. Lunch and dinner are included.
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin your full-day adventure with morning pickup from your hotel. Settle into the mini-coach for the drive along the Kona coast to Kilauea Volcanoes National Park.

    Along the way, take in scenic viewpoints and try some legendary Kona coffee and malasadas, the hot and sugary Portuguese donuts beloved by Hawaiians. You also stop the famous Punaluʻu Beach, which has black sand made of basalt and created by lava flowing into the ocean. Enjoy a light lunch along the way.

    At Kilauea Volcanoes National Park, your guide leads the exploration of lava tubes, steam vents, and old eruption sites. Sit down to dinner at the area's best restaurant at sunset.

    After dinner, your tour continues at the Jaggar Museum, the best viewpoint for the nighttime glow at Halemaumau Crater, before heading back to your hotel. Depending on the weather, your guide may stop briefly for some stargazing along Saddle Road.
