Pele -- Hawaii Island's Fire Goddess

Do you know Hawaii Island is nicknamed the Big Island for good reason? The island is by far the largest of all the Hawaiian Islands with a landmass of 4,028 square miles, and it's still growing as hot lava continues to pour from its Kilauea Volcano, the most active volcano in the world today! The ancient Hawaiian Fire Goddess Pele is said to make home in the fire pit named Halema'uma'u Crater at the Summit of Kilauea. Her explosive temper is on display nearly daily, in at least one or more forms: fiery eruptions, dramatic lava flows or smokey plumes. A day trip to Volcanoes National Park from Holualoa Inn is a must-do activity during your stay with us! Plan a full day, allow 6 hours round trip to make the drive to the southeast end of the island (which allows time for a few scenic stops to and from) and another two to three hours minimum to view the volcanic action, explore the Park, and poke around its information-packed visitor center.
