Some needs to figure out how to make people pay a small fee for this attraction. Paid $$$ for less in the Carribean. Take a flashlight

“a cave full of flowers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

We just gave it a quick view, but it was nice. It's own little rain forest down there.

“Very Cool Lava Tube!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

We actually went here during a tour with Hawaii Forest and Trail but anyone can go and its free. Its a fairly easy jaunt, but you do have to climb steep stairs and go through a very low section before you get into the larger part of the cave. It's fascinating, but then again, I really like stuff like this! Worth a visit if you're in the area.

“Your own private cave expedition- for free!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

Go in the narrow left tube and bring at least two good flashlights. If you go about a quarter mile in you get to a cool place where you can crawl up on land and you are in the middle of a jungle with no path out. So you go back the way you came - awesome experience!
