Don’t let the media’s hunger for ratings stop you from booking your Hawai’i adventure!

If you have seen the news recently, you may have seen sensationalized stories about the Kilauea volcano eruption that make it seem like our island is falling into the ocean.

The truth is that, although the eruption has certainly affected those that have lost their homes and live near the new fissures on the southeast coast—this represents only a sliver of our Big Island.

The volcanic activity at Kilauea is closely monitored--it is a living laboratory for geologists. Geologists are familiar with Kilauea because it has been continuously erupting since 1983.

The latest activity that has made the news is consistent with the evolution of the volcano and has not raised alert levels anywhere else on the island except for the immediate Leilani Estates neighborhood.

Although it is unfortunate that the Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park is not fully open for everyone’s safety, our island is filled with unique vistas and breathtaking scenery that are far from the eruption zone.

Come visit stunning Waipio Valley (featured in the movie Waterworld), western Hawaii’s golden coast with its permanently sunny beaches and water sports, Green Sand Beach (Papakōlea), Mauna Kea’s mountain top observatories, Hualalai’s coffee plantations, Akaka Falls and much more!

Adventure awaits but you have to book it first!
