Puna is a popular tourist destination on the Big Island. In Puna, there are a number of places you can visit including Kapoho Tide Pools, Ahalanui Park, Lava Tree State Park, and Kalapana. Kapoho Tide Pools are thermal tide pools that provide natural hot tubs for the local residents. Many local people like to travel to the Kapoho Tide Pools because the waters are always calm.
Ahalanui Park is a spring fed pool located near to the ocean. Fishes often travel to the pool so it is a good snorkeling spot. The thermal spring pool has many grassy areas so it is a good spot for picnicking.
Lava Tree State Park has a trail, which hikers can take to view the vegetation field. As you hike the Lava Tree State Park trail, you can observe the lava trees. The trail is situated in the lower part of the Puna district. There are many trees along the 0.7-mile loop trail so you don’t need to bring sunscreen. If you want, you can bring some water and food for the hiking journey. You can also bring your camera. There are several covered structures at the trail. If it happens to be raining, you can take a shelter at the covered structure. There are bathrooms in the park. The trail is quite narrow so you must be careful. While traveling on the trail, you will see many large tree roots surfacing the ground. Visitors can find various types of trees at Lava Tree State Park including Ohia trees, Uluhe Ferns, Palapalai Ferns and etc.
Kalapana town is a small fishing village in Puna. It used to have one of the most beautiful black sand beaches in Hawaii. The eruption of the Madame Pele volcano caused the area to be covered with lava flow. The lava flow buried the Royal Garden as well as the town. Everything that is in the path of the lava ware destroyed. There are only a few houses not destroyed by the lava flow. Many make shift stations are built to keep watch of the tourists that are visiting the site. If you want to observe the lava field, you should hike during at night. During at night, it is easier to see the outbreak of the lava. There are no facilities on the lava field so you need to bring all the equipments yourself. It is not recommended that you go to the ocean because it is an active volcano land.
