Outdoor Activities

Tropical fish surround you as you snorkel near the shore. Perhaps you'll see a sea turtle coming up for a breath before retuning to snack on seaweed. In contrast, you can hike along the barren lava landscape and see evidence of how Native Hawaiians lived and thrived in such a seemingly harsh landscape. Wander past the fish ponds that were constructed long ago to sustain the community and today provide refuge for endangered wetland birds.
