Our trip to the Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, the most famous black sand beach in Hawaii, became even more exciting when were were able to get up close, well sorta close, the rules say keep 6'-10' away from sea turtles, thank you zoom lens. The black sand is much coarser than the sands of other beaches. It's like trillions of tiny black pebbles. If you are thinking about taking a little sand as a souvenir, think again. It is against the law to remove sand from any beach in Hawaii. Punalu'u Beach has signs warning you not to remove the sand. All in all, it's a beautiful pl;ace to visit.

Free for all, but don't take the sand or harass the sea turtles
