First off, the road to South Point is pretty good, however it is narrow and rough in places. Given that, you drive for about 12 miles off the main highway to get to South Point. Here you'll find local fishermen on the cliffs overlooking the beautiful Pacific ocean. The water is so clear, you can see all sorts of fish from the cliffs and the folks we talked to were very friendly. There was a young lady selling jewelry and refreshments from the back of her car and showed us samples of green sand from the beach. She was very helpful in providing us directions to the beach. From South Point, we took our 4x4 Jeep and drove to the boat ramp and then headed north along the cliffs for about 2.5 miles to reach the Green Sand Beach. This is a 4x4 road, no doubt about it. In fact there are numerous roads in the area, but they all seem to lead to where we wanted to go. If you don't have a 4x4, there were some locals who will transport you to and back from the beach for a fee. Not sure how much they charge. Walking the 2.5 miles might be some work. The Green Sand Beach was beautiful and well worth the trip. We did some snorkling, but be careful of the currents. Great place to visit...and it IS green!!!
