This post is a continuation from my first post about Hawaii Vacation 2013.
If you haven’t done so, I recommend you to start reading from my first post.


My initial interest to visit Hawaii’s Big Island was mainly because I read about the volcano on the island. It’s world fampus as the most active island volcano in the world. And they have tours to see the location. My wife and I stayed in Kailua-Kona and took a tour called Big Island Grand Circle Tour from Roberts Hawaii. This post shares stories and some of the best photos I took from the day-tour.

Starting in the morning, the first stop is a big store called Big Island Candies. We basically got free candies and other food tasting there.


Rainbow Falls, beautiful view from this lookout.




Volcanoes National Park, this location used to be the very place of lava eruption.




Thurston Lava Tube. Please excuse my lack of skill in taking a good photo. It’s kinda dark there, and liquid burning lava used to flow through this tube.




Punalu’u Black Sand Beach. As you can see, the sand is darker there, and the rocks are volcanic rocks.




Another great shot of Punalu’u Black Sand Beach.




And we closed our adventure day watching this beautiful sunset at Kona Beach.
