Hawaii Sightseeing: Hidden Beaches
If there were only one thing that Hawaii is known for, it would have to be the amazing beaches that line the coastline of each island. The tropical climate, towering palm trees, and the pristine water all factor into making the perfect setting and create the stunning beauty that a Hawaiian beach is known for.
The visual that enters the mind is the white sand running into the ocean, with the blue sky and warm sun creating the perfect day. Find a little shade and a towel and you can practically see yourself in Hawaii.
Here’s a catch that you may not be expecting: what if the powder white sand was replaced with another color? What if the sand was black? Or red. Or green!
Yes, those actually exist in Hawaii, and are not that difficult to find. Ready to check out the variety of colorful beaches in Hawaii? Well, here’s how you an do just that.
Maui is the place to find red and black sand beaches, so get ready or a day you will remember forever. Start out in the early morning hours on a sightseeing tour that shows you the entire island, making its way around the southern portion of the island around Haleakala, and discover many amazing sites along the way. The Road To Hana is an adventure and you’ll have a great seat for this trek, discovering hidden island lookouts, and the part of the island that many visitors don't get to see. You will eventually come upon two of the top stops along the Hana Highway, Wai’anapanapa Black Sand Beach, and Koki Beach, where the dramatic red sand is found.
On the Big Island, a 3 mile hike to Papakolea Beach reveal a rarity in Hawaii, and one of only a handful in the world: a green sand beach. While a 4-wheel vehicle can make the trek to the beach, the hike showcases a stunning view of the island, and allows you to see ancient heiaus (temples) that are still standing from ancient Hawaii.
The Big Island also features a few black sand beaches, and during one of our incredible Big Island Tours, you may make a stop at one of these breathtaking beaches.
The beaches of Hawaii are amazing, and seeing the various colors of sand is a real treat. Don't miss out during your trip to Hawaii!
