End of the World Cliffs

End of the World Cliffs

Locals call these cliffs along the Big Island’s Kona coast “The End of the World” because of their height and sharp drop off. Just around the point from this photo is a cliff that visitors and locals alike leap off, as if jumping off the end of the world.

When the surf swells are in these cliffs turn from black to white, with dark lava being covered by white ocean spray. The swell also reveals blowholes that have been created over the years by pounding surf. In turn, receding swells leave behind beautiful mini-waterfalls as seawater cascades back into the ocean.
