Maui Vacation (Day 4) The Road to Hana Part 2 / マウイ島旅行 (四日目) ハナへの道 パート2

The long drive to Hana continues.  Our destination - Black Sand Beach at Wai'anapanapa State Park.

Yep, this was our destination - Black Sand Beach.  "The black sand is the result of lava flowing into the ocean and shattering when it comes into contact with the cool water. The volcanic pieces are then smashed against each other and the shoreline with each wave, thus creating the black sand."


Black Sand Beach / ブラック・サンド・ビーチ

Is this beach incredible or what.  There are signs that says its rather dangerous for swimming because of strong currents and the rocky reefs.  Also some really nasty jellyfish in these waters.


Right down at the beach is an entry way to a lava cave.
