Lava Caves

Cave in Waiʻanapanapa State Park

A 10-minute loop path north of the beach parking lot leads to a pair of freshwater lava-tube caves. Their garden-like exteriors are draped with ferns, while their interiors harbor deep spring-fed pools with resident fish. Waiʻanapanapa means ‘glistening waters’ and the pools’ crystal-clear mineral waters reputedly rejuvenate the skin. They will certainly invigorate – these sunless pools are refreshingly brisk!
