If you think “beach is beach” have a look at this spectacular beach: Punalu’u Black Sand Beach. There is a wonderful bay of fine black sand beach with incredibly turquoise water. In this warm sand the Hawaiian green sea turtles like to lay down and take a nap or watch us play. There were more turtles than humans at this beach, when we were there. And in the beautiful “Queen’s pool”, a volcanic tidal pool with warm water, the turtles took their bath. Black Sand Beach is located half-way between Volcano and Na’alehu on the southern portion of the Big Island.
