    Akatsuka Orchids is easily accessed from the Highway 11 right around the 22 mile marker. They have a wonderful selection of orchids and other exotic flowers. The variety, colors and aromas are just enchanting. The staff is knowledgeable and willing to share. They also have a nice gift shop.

    Beautiful plants. The exterior is very well made. They have a gorgeous garden with a beautiful little temple, and lots of gorgeous flowers.

    Beautiful! Simple but elegant. A delightful break after the long drive around the southern part of the Big Island.

    Fantastic orchids and unbelievable staff. You can ship a specific plant home from here at a reasonable price. Self guided tour through an awesome maze or pay a tiny bit extra to have the pros show you through and do a planting experience. Great gift shop and an awesome location if you plan on doing anything else in the area. You could spend 5 minutes here or hours. Great stop!

Where to stay in Volcano

Volcano remains compact, so accommodations are pretty straightforward. Bed and breakfasts, cottages, and lodges represent most of the options here, but you'll also find a couple of hostels/budget inns. Most establishments feature traditional Polynesian architecture. Many accommodations sit near the access road to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, but a few are set a bit farther away from it.
