The Black Sand Beach

At Wai’anapanapa Park just before Hana, there is a beach of black sand which is formed when hot lava shatters as it encounters the sea. The beach is in a crescent of lava formations including an arch, and a blowhole.

On the day we where there, a large surf pounded into the beach, and it was a great spectacle to see them crash along the cliffs.

  2. Thanks Bill.

    Certainly a strange year for weather, here in Ontario is is very warm, warm enough for shorts. That is unheard of for this area in early April.

    Cheers, Harold

  3. I love your pictures of Hawaii… the drama of the mighty ocean battling against the lava rocks.
