Great Urban Parks in The Big Island (Hawaii island)

Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park
304 Reviews
The Big Island (Hawaii island)
41.9km from downtown
UNESCO World Heritage - Natural Sites
"Huge park that includes many different sights scattered over different scenes. You'll see areas that used to be active volcanoes."
Reasons to Recommend: Kilauea Volcano is one of the most active active volcanoes in the world and has never stopped erupting since 1983. The huge crater is like a cauldron, and the red and hot magma flows in the volcanic lake, as if the wound on the earth is cracked again, and blood flows out, which can be called a wonder in nature. The two most active volcanoes in the world, Mauna Loa and Kilauea, are also in this park, and the entire volcano park stretches from the top of Mauna Loa to the ocean. Here, you can hike trails through volcanic craters, scorching deserts and rainforests, as well as museums, petroglyphs, and walkable lava tunnels. Remains of the town's buildings destroyed by the crater can also be seen around the crater.

"Akaka is the largest among many state parks in Hawaii. The waterfalls are well-known. The waterfalls are not wide and can’t be compared with the Huangguoshu Waterfalls in our fields. However, the range of descent is relatively large, which is quite spectacular."
Reasons to Recommend: Akaka Falls State Park, located in Hawaii, USA, is named after the Akaka Falls in the park. Wild orchids, bamboo forests and ferns grow in the park. Tourists can also admire Kahuna Falls, which is very beautiful with lush flowers and plants around the falls. Not far away is Akaka Falls, which is 442 feet high and hangs on the cliff like a huge water curtain. The crystal water droplets beat the stones in the pool below the waterfall from time to time, which is very rhythmic.
