Ahalanui County Park warm pond on the Puna Coast of the Big Island, Hawaii. Following a 1960 eruption, the formerly cool pool had been naturally geothermally-heated. The pool - along with the nearby Kapoho Warm Ponds - was finally claimed in early July of 2018 by lavas originating from fissure eruptions associated with the East Rift Zone of Kilauea Volcano.
A warm pool of fresh water near Isaac Hale State Park, Puna Coast of the Big Island. So far, the pool remains untouched by the 2018 eruptions in this area and it looks like it will be spared from this round of eruptive activity.
