Papakolea Beach , Hawaii

This beach is one of the only two Green Beaches in the world. The beach’s olive-colored sand is due to the presence of olivine, a greenish, semi-precious stone from the Pu’u o Mahana cinder cone. The strong waves that hit the base of the cinder cone extract olivine out of the cinder and deposit them on the sand, giving it a unique green color.
