Take in a Sunset Experience for memories of your Hawaiian vacation. This is the perfect way to cap off your day in paradise. You will see the gorgeous beaches along the Kona and Kohala Coasts, then venture to the far side of the Kohala Mountains. Then crest Mauna Loa, the world's largest volcano. With the sun now behind the mountain, you'll be able to better spot the glowing lava, as well as the magma lake within Halema'uma'u Crater. You'll see Punalu'u black sand beach and Papakolea green sand beach, two of the most strikingly beautiful and exotic beaches in the world. Pass over Pu'uhonua 'o Honaunau, a place of refuge under ancient Hawaiian law, and Kealakekua Bay where Capt. James Cook first came ashore in the 1700's and the sun begins to set. This is truly one of nature's best shows. The sky will turn shades of bright yellow, deep orange, burning red and, occasionally, brilliant purple. If you're lucky, you'll see a green flash on the horizon as the sun slips down below. (sunset colors are not guaranteed).
