Hawaii – Road to South Point

On the West side of Volcano National Park lies the most southernmost point of the Big Island and of the 50 United States.

Turning off the Route 11, it is a 20 mile narrow road that leads to the windswept cliffs.

The weather changes rapidly in the windy region and we were lucky to have great weather once we arrived.

Amazing vista overlooking the cliffs and strong waves.

Along the coast it is easy to spot whale pods swimming in the distance. Some fishermen say they come very close to shore at night attracted by the car headlights.

Amazing waves slamming into the southern tip of the island.

Beautiful rainbow!

Climbed up the light beacon at the southermost point. The entire tower actually shakes a bit from the wind.

Locals drive in with their 4×4 vehicles to fish and launch their boats. It is a very quiet spot for camping out.

Ranch land along the way.

Back on Route 11 heading West towards Volcano National Park and Keaau.
