Island Tour / Exploration, Kailua-Kona: 10 reviews and 9 photos


Fondest memory: .... and Mauna Kea. Both are shield volcanoes which means that they are not very explosive and that you won´t realize their sheer size since they cover such a large area each. Mind you - they are well over 8000 metres high, having built this island from the bottom of the sea. Kilauea, the active volcano, sits on the south side of the island. As a geographer, I can always only stand in awe.
