Honeymoon Part 6: The Green Sand Beach

On the last day, after leaving Volcano National Park, we wanted to stop by the green sand beach on the southern tip of the island, then get back to Kona. The green sand turned out to be only tinted green, because it had pebbles of a green crystal mixed with the regular sand, but it was still worth the trip.

On the way to the beach we passed an old wind farm. Only about two thirds of the windmills were still working, but it was pretty nifty all the same. the wind

The hike was about 2 miles along a very rocky coast to get to the green sand beach.

Sue on the beach. Not all that greenish, but it was a nice beach all the same. Good surf and pretty cliffs.

Just getting in and out of the beach was pretty difficult.

The Kona airport was bizarre. No walls, all outdoors, just a few roofed over areas where you waiting for your plane to pull up.
