This was just one more in a great find driving around the area. We spent the next day after touring the Volcanoes National Park seeing this area. It's amazing to see the destruction all the way to the sea from the lava. So barren and brutal in its path. But along the way you have some really cool drives through some tree-lined roads that you never know what you will come across around the next curve.

I wish I'd known about this park and read the reviews here before we visited, we didn't know about hiking over to the new flows. We stopped here on a whim as we went by coming back from Isaac Hale park, it looked pretty and it sure is. Right near the park entrance there are spectacular cliffs along the sea, and it's forested and shady, very nice. This would be a great place to hang out for a picnic and listen to the waves crashing in. Definitely worth a stop and a few photos, and if you're adventurous, read the other reviews here about hiking to the new lava. Pay attention to the advice about footwear, while we didn't hike here, we do have experience hiking a'a and it can be brutal.

Drove here from volcano after visiting the national park. Worth it for the drive alone. But once there it’s both breathtaking and haunting. The waves break directly onto the cliffs and the spray washes over the top depending on where you stand. Locals believe the place is haunted and I can see how you may feel that.

VNP staff advised us to come here to see where the lava had flowed into the sea. We were able to walk across the lava fields with the ocean crashing onto the newly formed cliffs. the lava had some steam vents and was still warm in places, Very rugged so good closed in shoes needed to walk on lava.
