yea, i know, sounds weird, eh, send somebody to the local DUMP? YES, because, the 'June 27th Flow' in 2014 did not TOUCH the recently built dump/transfer station. You can actually see the cooled lava that oozed thru the chain link fence, dribbled down the embankment, kissed the pavement, in a few spots, THEN STOPPED! If you continue down the road, which takes you back to Pahoa Town, you will be traveling thru the lava flow, keep your eyes open~

'lighthouse' (& i use that term lightly!!) was spared in the Kapoho Eruption in 1959-60. Legend says that Pele took human form, as an ugly old woman, shortly before the eruption. She went door-to-door seeking food & shelter. Everyone turned her away, EXCEPT the 'lighthouse' keeper. The lava went AROUND the concrete pad, leaving it untouched, surrounded by lava~

Tours guides are all descendants of native Hawaiian families, of Kalapana, & Kaimu, both villages affected by the lava flows of the 1980's. History, myths & legends play their part in the Hawaiian culture, of today. I was honored to be 1 of 6 passengers on 'Kaewhiani' lava boat tour 9/11/16, AMAZING, to say the least! Explore the 'edge of creation' with Kalapana Cultural Tours, Hawaiian style. FIVE STARS!

Every Wednesday evening, at Uncle Robert's in Kalapana/Kaimu is the open market/Ho'olaulea, festival of food drink, music, dance & crafts. The family compound is the residence of one of the most revered families of the Puna District. Uncle Robert, recently passed, & his legacy of aloha lives on thru his ohana & this weekly celebration. Immerse yourselves in authentic Hawai'i. Also the 'office' for Kalapana Cultural Tours, owned & operated by the Kali'iho'omalu Ohana. See them for lava tours, boats, bikes, & hikes!!
