I took a walk to a market in Waikoloa around 15 minutes away.
There are five volcanoes including the famous one “Kīlauea,” on the big island and two of them are active. The ground is covered with black rocks. Have you heard of Punaluu Black Sand Beach? It’s located on the southeastern coast. Can you imagine a beach covered with black sand!
There is nothing but hotels, condos and golf courses in Waikoloa.
The town has calm and peaceful atmosphere. When my family went for a stroll at night, we were safe even though streets were dark and had few lights. We were able to see the Milky Way. This island intentionally suppresses the influence of lights to make star-watching easier.
Here is the view of the markets “Kings Shops” and “Queens’ Marketplace”
