At the nearby Ahalanui Park, volcanically heated spring water feeds into a warm pond which mixes with ocean water. Thurston Lava tube, at Volcanoes National Park, is on our day-trip itinerary Coconut Beach, a newly formed black sand beach in nearby Kalapana. Kehena Beach, a mile away, is great for snorkling in calm weather. The famous Red Road you will travel to get here. See the molds left by lava surrounding trees at the Lava Tree State Park.

You’ve come so far, why not make it an adventure?

Kalani offers a handy orientation to the island on its website. If you want to come early, stay late, or take a quick trip off the property to see the area, there is much to do and see nearby (pictures above).  The retreat is remote, so you will need a car for many of these adventures, or you can arrange with them for a Holoholo outing.  Kalani offers discounted prices if you want to add a day or two on to your stay.  And there are other amazing things to do and see on our biggest Hawaiian Island if you want to pull up roots and explore once the retreat is over. For example:


Papakolea, the green sand beach, is the southern most tip of the United States, and one of only four green sand beaches in the world. Visit the observatories on top of Mauna Kea for public stargazing and events. Akaka Falls is located nearby Hilo, the closest international airport to Kalani.
