What to Expect
Get started on your journey with a drive thru Hilo’s own “Walk of Fame” with trees planted by Amelia Earhart to Babe Ruth, explore the popularity drive on the way to Liliuokalani Gardens. Once at the Gardens, take a stroll along the Japanese garden pieces and authentic Teahouse.

View the pristine Rainbow Falls, home of Hina (Hawaiian Moon Goddess). The colors that dance in the falls will illuminate in front of your eyes. Whether it be the fascinating Banyan trees or the Falls itself, take the perfect getaway photo to be instilled in the moment.

A quick drive through the village of Pahoa. This mini village has encounter a few close calls over the years. From Lava Flows to Hurricanes, luckily this little village is humbled by the warmth of a close knit community.

Next, journey over the most recent lava flow on the way to Pohoiki. Originally a local fisherman’s boat launch and surf spot, is now the most talked about beach on Hawaii Island. Over ran by Kilauea's 2018 lava eruption, Pohoiki is now the newest black sand beach.

Indulge in macadamia nuts as we visit the production factory and visitor center. There are 12 flavors to sample along with mac nut infused shortbread cookies. Spend a few in the Nature walk before relaxing in the snack bar area where sandwiches or mac nut ice cream are available for purchase.
