Black Sand Beach

This dark shoreline was created from the lava basalt that flowed here then exploded into pieces as it hit the ocean water. White sand is pulverized over eons but black sand is created almost instantly from the explosions. Then, the pieces are rounded into tiny pebbles over many years. You may also spot many sea turtles here who choose to make black sand beaches their nesting spot for the warmth that is retained.
