The Unexpected Eruption Of The Halemaʻumaʻu Lava Lake In Hawaii Must Be Seen To Be Believed!
With approximately 20 volcanoes ranging in age from 400,000 years to 5.1 million years, the Hawaiian archipelago is the youngest section of the Hawaiian-Emperor seamount chain of volcanoes and seamounts extending across the Pacific Ocean. The most famous of Hawaii’s volcanoes, Kilauea, is considered one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Though the volcano was previously active last in August 2018, an eruption began at the summit around 9:30 p.m. on December 20, 2020, with multiple fissures on the walls of the Halema’uma’u Crater. And let us tell you, this is one eruption you’ll want to see for yourself.
ʻAkaka Falls State Park

Lava Tree State Monument, Big Island
A 17-acre park that features a forest of lava trees, the result of a lava flow that swept through the forest, leaving behind lava molds of the tree trunks.

One of the biggest draws to Nanawale Forest Reserve is the Lava Trees State Monument, which showcases the beauty that can come with tragedy and disaster – in this case magnificent trees frozen in time – and lava from a once terrible eruption.

Hilo – Hawaii’s Most Naturally Beautiful Town Will Enchant You In The Best Way Possible
The Hawaiian Islands are home to several towns surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty, but this one stands out in a crowd. With a population of approximately 43,000, Hilo is the state’s fourth largest city. Unlike many Hawaiian cities, Hilo has never experienced huge tourist draws, which means it has stayed true to the state’s pre-World War II persona and is home to plantation-style architecture and historic storefronts.
But it’s the natural beauty you’ll find in this town nestled on Hawaii Island’s eastern coast that is truly remarkable. It is within city limits that you will find breathtaking beaches, dramatic waterfalls, lush rainforests, and magnificent gardens. From popular state parks to hidden oases, here are 10 destinations that prove Hilo absolutely deserves the honor of being Hawaii’s most naturally beautiful town.
