Punalu`u Bake Shop

Punalu’u Bake Shop is the southernmost bakery in the United States and a delicious attraction on the Deluxe Volcano and Big Island Circle tour.

Gem gives high praise for this popular Big Island bakery for Hawaiʻi Mom Blog.

After a jaunt down to South Point, we stopped at Punalu`u Bake Shop for some sweets (and because who knows when I’ll be down that side of Hawai`i Island again).

Known for their sweet breads, Punalu`u Bake Shop also offers cookies, sandwiches, and baked goods in their shop.

Of course, I went for the sweets!

There were so many treats to choose from, so I followed the lead of the customers ahead of me, and made sure to get a lot of malasadas!

I got: Cocoa Puff, Vanilla Cream Filled Malasada, Passion Fruit Glazed Malasada, Sweet Bread Pudding, Guava Malasada, and Cinnamon Pinwheel with Cream Cheese Icing.

They were all so yummy, but if I had to choose just one favorite, it would be the Guava Malasadas.  I liked the guava flavor, and the soft and chewy interior of the malasadas.  If you love cream-filled malasadas, definitely try one of those varieties.

The Bread Pudding was really good too – thick, dense, and with raisins!

The Cinnamon Pinwheel was light and airy, and there was no skimping on the icing!

If you love Cocoa Puffs, Punalu`u’s Bake Shop’s was really good.

Great Tour Guarantee

At Kailani Tours, our top priority is delivering unforgettable Big Island experiences. We’re confident that you’ll find our tours enriching and well worth your time. If for any reason you feel otherwise, please tell us. We’ll make it right, whether that means inviting you on another tour, issuing a refund, or providing a voucher for a future visit. Your time is precious, and we’re honored that you choose to spend it exploring the Big Island with us.

Here’s what we cannot guarantee:

You will see active lava flows

Mother Nature has her own schedule, and while we wish we could promise a spectacular lava show, it’s truly up to the forces of the earth.

You’ll have full access to every part of the parks.

Volcano National Park areas are subject to closures based on safety assessments by park officials. As always, safety is our top priority and we can easily adapt our itinerary to make sure you get the best experience possible.

You’ll experience perfect weather

The Big Island’s weather can be as unpredictable as it is beautiful. We can’t guarantee sunshine and clear skies every day, but the dynamic weather is part of the island’s charm.

We value your decision to discover the Big Island with us, and we’re committed to making your tour a highlight of your Hawaii visit.


With Trip Protection (Highly Recommended)

For a small fee (15%), Trip Protection allows you to cancel or reschedule your tour at any time – for any reason – up to 1 hour prior to trip departure. You will be reimbursed for the FULL amount of each ticket, less the cost of trip protection and processing fees. 

You may opt in or opt out of Trip Protection at the time of booking, either online or over the phone.

Without Trip Protection

You may cancel or reschedule your tour up to 48 hours before your tour’s scheduled departure to avoid fees or penalties. 

Refunds are not possible within 48 hours of your tour’s departure time, however, we will make every effort to accommodate rescheduling your booking to another date, if you so desire.

Please Note: Our tours operate rain or shine, though itineraries may be adjusted in response to severe weather conditions. Access to certain parts of Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, including during events like active lava flows or eruptions, may be restricted or closed by park officials without notice. In such cases, Kailani Tours does not offer partial refunds for any part of the tour affected by these restrictions.

With our vast experience navigating these occasional closures, you can trust that we will make the absolute most of your day with us, no matter the conditions.
