Puna, thermal pool city


How much would you have to pay to luxuriate in a warm pool set beside the blue Pacific in a cocopalm grove? Zip. Ahalanui Warm Pond Park is a notable freebie. It’s found along the Pohoiki Scenic Coastal Drive on the Big Island. A man-enhanced seaside pool, about 200 feet by 50 feet, it’s heated by geothermal energy just below body temperature.
