Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is home to two active volcanoes, Mauna Loa and Kilauea, and the entire park extends from the top of Mauna Loa all the way to the sea. A footpath will lead you through volcanic craters, deserts, and rain forests, with museums, rock paintings and accessible lava tunnels along the way. Architectural ruins of destroyed towns can also be sighted around the craters. Kilauea is a highly active volcano and its enormous crater resembles a giant cauldron in which scalding red-hot lava can be seen flowing in volcanic lakes, making it a true wonder of the nature.

Trip Moments

Suyilu   
Coconut Island is opposite the Hillo Castle Hotel, which is connected by a white pedestrian bridge. In Hawaii, the island is called Moku'ola, which means healing the island. It is said that this island can cure the pain and relieve the disaster. The island is small in size, and locals like to go picnic, swim, rest, and fish. There is also a 3 meter high diving platform where kids like to climb and dive. The water here is not very blue, but it is very clear. You can see the black lava at the bottom of the water. There is very little sand. White pedestrian bridge, a lot of local children jumped from the bridge to the water to play. The water here is not too shallow, but the children jumped up, climbed up, and continued to jump, and never tired. My dry duck looked envious. There are of course coconut trees on the island of , the locals come here for a picnic, and some camp tents. A 3-meter diving platform extends from the island, with two high and low diving platforms. The younger grades all jumped from the short platform. There was a little girl who wanted to jump from a height. She asked her father, and her father shook his head and said he did not agree. She sneaked to the high jump and tried to jump. Her father ran quickly and gave her a preaching. She waited for the short platform and waited for the little boy to jump and then jumped. We watched the children diving and playing, and it was quite interesting. At this time, I feel that swimming is not just a survival skill, but also increases the fun of life. Unfortunately, I am still afraid of water.
