Kapoho Bay was a treasured area of protected tidepools along the Puna coast until the 2018 eruption of Kīlauea volcano completely filled in the bay. Free from lava for almost 60 years, Kapoho Bay and its famous “Champagne Pools” were cherished by both locals and visitors. This page is both to remember this special place and to let future visitors know about the recent loss here.
