The Aloha state is known for some of the most incredible natural wonders in the world. Here are five amazing places to go sightseeing.
Black Sand Beaches
Hawaii has some of the top black sand beaches in the world. The sand is made from small lava fragments, which help the beaches to retain warmth. As a result, the sea turtles of Hawaii love the black sand areas, since they like to lounge in the black sands.
Punalu’u beach on Big Island is the world’s most impressive black sand beach. Visitors can see several species of turtles, and go swimming, hiking, camping and picnicking along the beautiful water’s edge. Although people can go snorkeling there, other beaches are actually more appropriate for snorkeling, since Punalu’u has strong undercurrents that can make swimming and snorkeling dangerous. Ninole Bay, which you can reach by walking from Punalu’u beach, is in a more secluded bar area. There snorkelers can exploit the more sheltered, warm waters of the bay.
