An unforgettable drive from the top of Kilauea in Hawai'i to the Pacific Ocean. Many people come to Hawaii for the beaches, but Kilauea is a place you do not want to miss on any visit to the Big Island. Set aside an entire day, at least, for seeing Kilauea and all its sites. This drive down the Chain of Craters Drive is an unforgettable journey from the top of the volcano, past volcanic floes and craters from ages past, and down to the ocean where the lava flows into the ocean. On the way you can stop and walk through a lava tube (you can check out the video on the Thurston Lava Tube point of interest) and a short walk gets you out of the car an across the lava fields to see petroglyphs in the lava. This drive gets you away from the tourist filled beaches and into a different world, the world of the volcano.
