The eruption of the volcano on the Big Island has not only destroyed hundreds of homes and disrupted 1000s of lives but ALSO COMPLETELY BURIED AHALANUI PARK.

Was holding my breath that Hot Ponds would be spared. Very sad to know that we can never swim at Ahalanui again. Thank you to the awesome lifeguards and mellow people here over the years. One of the best places in the world....gone forever.....

My heart goes out to all the Locals. Have enjoyed my visits to Puna and the Hot Ponds and have always felt welcome. My trips to the pond at night, with my wife will always be a fond memory. A magic place is gone.

I only visited once in March this year but it was such a special experience. Natural, low-key and relaxed. Sadly it has now been overwhelmed by lava from Kilauea.

Unfortunately the thermal pool and this park were just covered by lava yesterday, so don't exist anymore. The 5 stars are in memory for how nice it was.

No parking fees; however, parking is limited, so you may have to wait a couple minutes for someone to pull out or drive across the road to a dirt lot to park.
