Green Sand Beach

Hawaii even contains a green sand beach. No the sand is not green because of algae; it’s green as it’s consists of a green mineral named olivine, which can be abundant in lava rocks. Very few people reach Green Sand Beach as it requires a severe five mile round trip hike or a good off road automobile to get there. Yet after you make it there, its emerald green sand can be a picture to observe.
