Punalu Beach, Hawaii - Black Sand Beach

At the eastern end of the island of Hawaii, is one of the most unique beaches in the world, Punalu. This is one of only a handful of black sand beaches and it's one of the most popular destinations in Hawaii. The black sand is actually the remnant of molten lava flowing into the sea and cooled rapidly. Locals realize the beauty of the beach and prohibit Punalu tourists do not take their precious black sand, or touch the rare turtles bask in there, because the bacteria on our hands can kill turtles are tortoises.
