Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park is located on the island of Hawai’i. From Kailua- Kona : 96 miles southeast on Highway 11 (2 to 2 1/2 hour drive), or 125 miles through Waimea and Hilo via highways 19 and 11 (2 1/2 to 3 hours).
The Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park (this page), The Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park on the Big Island , and. The Haleakala National Park on Maui.
According to the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO), the lava lake remains active and hasn’t shown big variations over the past days.
On April 30, the Pu’u ‘O’o crater on Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, suddenly collapsed. It was the starting point for the volcano’s monthslong eruption, which went on to produce 320,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools’ worth of lava that transformed the landscape and ultimately destroyed 700 homes.
The Island of Maui has one active volcano, Haleakalā, which has erupted at least 10 times during the past 1,000 years. Kīlauea, the youngest and most active volcano on the Island of Hawai’i , has erupted almost continuously since 1983 to 2018 at Pu’u ‘Ō’ō and other vents along the volcano’s East Rift Zone.
Hilo is more affordable and has more local character. Hilo definitely feels less touristy than Kona , which is a good thing. Hilo has some great rainforests and waterfalls in the area, so it’s a good place for hiking and other outdoor activities. The Hilo side gets a lot more rain than Kona , so consider that as well.
