Lava, Orchids & Aloha!

The Lava is currently flowing into the ocean with huge volume. It has moved closer to the end of Highway 130 and has taken out several houses in the Kalapana Gardens Subdivision over the last couple of months. The lava has been flowing with small interruptions since 1982 and covered the town of Kalapana in 1990. Since then this is right now the closest, the lava has ever moved back toward old Kalapana. Over the last twenty years it has shifted back and forth between the Volcanoes National Park and the Kalapana side. Many previous residents have reclaimed their properties and felt safe enough to re-cultivate their gardens and rebuild on their lots.

The lava flow in Kalapana is only about 10 minutes from Hale Moana Hawaii Bed & Breakfast. It is a spectacular sight and a profound experience. To closely watch the lava visitors can walk out to the Kalapana Lava Viewing Area or take an amazing boat ride.

Besides seeing the lava Hale Moana Hawaii Bed and Breakfast's location is perfect to explore the beautiful Puna coast with its thermally heated pools (Ahalanui Hot Ponds), excellent snorkeling (Kapoho Tide Pools) and black sand beaches or to venture to the Volcanoes National Park, Hilo and the area north of Hilo with its waterfalls and botanical gardens. Pahoa is only minutes away with great restaurants, open Farmers Markets and an alternative flair.

To experience our tropical Hawaiian paradise, visitors can stroll through our beautiful gardens with its orchids, tropical flowers and variety of tropical fruits. Most of our breakfast ingredients are from our garden, the farmers' markets and local vendors.
