Hawaii’s lava tubes

The Hana Lava Tube is not the only accessible lava tube on Maui—another cave system lies near a black sand beach in Wai‘ānapanapa State Park, also near Hana. There are many others throughout the Hawaiian islands, from the Kazumura lava tube—one of the longest and deepest lava tubes in the world—to the Thurston lava tube inside Hawaii Volcano National Park, both on the Big Island. Others are partly underwater, forming some of the best snorkeling spots in the island chain.
