1. The Volcanoes National Park
On the big island sits the world’s magnificent Kilauea Volcano. A closer look at this active volcano is the sight of lava pouring out.
The surrounding is filled with cooled lava rocks, giving it an amazingly natural look. You can also experience the eruption by hearing gas emissions and watching pillars of ash escaping into the air.
The park’s beauty doesn’t end there. The Thurston Lava Tube, the Jagger Museum, Devastation Trail, and the magnificent Halema’uma’u crater are other sites you can’t afford to miss out on.
2. Waikiki Beach

The sight of the beautiful waters and the sandy beach is magical. On the beach also sits the Diamond Head state monument, giving the coastline an attractive look. The monument also boasts rich history from the time it served as the Island’s coastal defense point, with old bunkers and artillery pick-up stations. A helicopter tour for the view would suffice.
3. Diamond Head Crater
The extinct volcano on the East of Waikiki in Hawaii is another go-to place for a sightseeing adventure.
The place boasts a magnificent view with a visible steep historic hiking path leading to a higher viewpoint. The beauty of this crater is only visible on the Diamond Head moment, but the helicopter view is unique and ecstatic.
