Glampers can not stay in this area without visiting the Kalapana lava viewing area. Visitors can see the incredible site of active lava flows crashing into the sea, as well as lava flows within the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Guests will also be able to enjoy days at Kehena beach. A striking black-sand beach surrounded by black lava rock, it is a prominent landmark of the Puna coast. Also known as Dolphin Beach—when the waters are calm—it is the perfect place to swim with the frequently seen spinner dolphins.

Glampers can also swim in Kaphoho's magnificent tide pools where a variety of sea life can be found, such as crabs, fish, and shellfish. With many pools volcanically heated and calm waters, it is a great area for snorkeling. For those looking for a peaceful forest walk or picnic, MacKenzie State Park is a remote 13-acre forest with beautiful views of the ocean and rock cliffs.

If guests want to mingle with locals, Uncle Robert's Wednesday Night Market is the place to be. With live music, artisan crafts, and a diverse variety of food stalls, it is the social event of the week. At this lively and friendly market, visitors will experience the "aloha" community spirit.
