We only stopped here for about half an hour but took great interest in exploring the cave. Even 74 year old mom was enthralled with the natural wonder!

The owner purchased this land over 20 years ago and cleaned out the tubes so you can walk right in and see what one looks like. For $12 each you get a flashlight and can read all about tubes on your walk which took us...More

I have seen other lava tubes, but this is spectacular. It was informative and as you explore the totally dark cave with only your flashlight, you find some extraordinary formations.

It looks like the owner is a real environmentalist which I guess makes me feel better about the $12 fee per person. There are plenty of signs with useful facts for your self-guided tour. It takes about 30 minutes to see everything there is to...More

The cave is at the end of Hana Road and almost in Hana. I think the entrance is too expensive for what you see. There's nothing special to see on this cave. I've seen better caves than this one. They're only open until 5 pm...More
