CaribbeanDays will always have exclusive, beautiful, luxury villas in the Caribbean. It remains our specialty. But we are excited to bring our guests new destinations and opportunities.

CaribbeanDays can take you on a tour of the Church the villagers saved from molten lava.

Overlooking beautiful and historic Kealakekua Bay, St. Benedict’s Painted Church is a small yet stunningly beautiful church located in the famous Kona coffee growing region, at a place called Honaunau on the Big Island of Hawaii. The church was erected in 1899 by Father John Velghe who, with no formal training, painted the interior of the church with scenes from the bible and the lives of the saints. His paintings, made from regular house paint, became important teaching tools in a time when many Hawaiians couldn’t read and write.

The villagers saved this Church, not once; but twice. They moved this Church out of the reach of the lava flow while their village was completely destroyed.

On this walking tour, you will witness how this volcano engulfed everything in it’s path and completely filled Kaimu Bay.

These black rock formations are incredible.
