Leaving Volcano National Park we stopped for lunch in the little town of Volcano.
We shared a delicious pizza at cafe Ono.
After lunch we drove south. About 30 miles from the park is the southernmost bakery in the 50 US states. At the Rim Restaurant in Volcano House the served guava bread from Punalu’u Bake Shop in Na’alehu.
Guava sweet bread and lilikoi malasada (passion fruit iced Portuguese donut).
Continuing south we reached the southernmost point in the 50 US states.
Ka Lae the southernmost point is a rocky class about 12 miles off the highway. It’s latitude is 18.9N. There is no signage marking the spot, we had to rely on gps to get us there.
The southernmost point in the continental US is in Key West, FL. It is a very well marked tourist attraction. It is at 24.5N.
The actual southernmost point of the US is on the US Territory of Palmyra Island at 5N.
On the drive north we stopped at the Royal Kona Coffee Museum. We got Kona coffee samples and watched a video on coffee growing. Of course, I had to buy Kona coffee to bring home.
