Nature Attractions in Poipu

The Pu‘uwanawana Volcanic Cone was formed more than five million years ago from a volcano spewing lava. Pu‘uwanawana is known as a cinder cone volcano, the simplest and smallest type of volcano. The cone shaped volcano is made from cinders or igneous rock that has been ejected. Cinder cone volcanos have a bowl-shaped crater at the summit and found throughout volcanic terrains around the world. A number of other cinder cones are within the Scenic Byway corridor.

The Pu‘uwanawana Volcanic Cone is a part of the Koloa Heritage Trail and is labeled as marker #9 on the trail.
