A favorite scenic drive on the Big Island, the Kalapana – Kapoho road (also known as “red road”) runs along the coast through tree tunnels in the lush Puna district, passes by a few beach parks and hot ponds which make great stops to take in the surroundings, and abruptly stops at the Isaac Hale beach park where it has been cut off by the most recent lava flow.
The 2018 volcanic eruption also created several natural thermal ponds which are contained by all the new black sand that trap heated spring water. The heat from the water seeping underground and reemerging creates these ponds, making them now the newest natural volcanically-heated ponds on the island.
Kaimū beach fits very easily into every itinerary that takes you into Puna and its beauty is not to be missed. Not for swimming, but the view is spectacular.
