Papakolea, Green Sand Beach

Posted by on May 6, 2013 in Weird | Comments Off on Papakolea, Green Sand Beach

If you’re visiting the Big Island of Hawaii and looking for a unique experience, you may want to go to Papakolea, the green sand beach. The beach area itself is not very large, less than 200 yards wide. The green color comes from olivine crystals and even though there is some black sand mixed in, it primarily appears green in color. It is greatly appreciated if you resist the temptation to take a souvenir of green sand with you and instead just took a lot of pictures to spark your memories and to share the experience with others.
