The green sand beach is a must see if you are visiting the Big Island....one of only two in the world...you gotta see it! But it's an adventure to get there. We took our rental car as far as we could, which was a parking lot where some locals were offering $15/person to take us on a VERY bad 4x4 only road. (Pay for the taxi, it's worth it. The hike is long, hot and dusty.)
We rode in the back of a truck, held on for our lives, and were completely covered in dust by the time we reached the green sand beach. The view on the ride there was nice...what we could see through the dust, that is.
Once we reached the beach, we forgot any difficulty we had endured getting there. In a word, it is amazing! Green sand with flecks of gold that sparkle in the sun. We played in the water for approx an hour while the driver waited for us. Awesome!
