Papakōlea Beach, more commonly known as “green sand beach” is located near South Point, in the Kaʻū district of the island of Hawaiʻi and is one of four green sand beaches known in the world.
Located at the southern tip just west of South Point. The sand is actually a green olive color caused by eruptions from what was once a volcano.
The hike to the beach is about 2 miles from where you can park or if you have an off-road vehicle, preferably at 4×4 you can drive down to the beach. Green Sands beach is just one of many reasons the big island is known as one of the most beautiful places to visit.
