Swimming in a Lava Tube – Wai’anapanapa State Park, Maui – Photo

categories: USA Travel


One of the coolest things to do at the little state park with the big name near Hana on Maui is to swim in a lava tube. And coolest can also apply to the temperature of the water which is fresh water and much cooler than the ocean around Maui. The first picture is what it really looks like from within the cave formed from the lava tube as you look back to the cave opening. This second picture is a flash picture of the ceiling of the cave and the many different colors of lava.
