A Lighter Shade of Sand

Hapuna Beach Hawaii

If you’ve been following along on our trip around the Big Island of Hawaii you may have gotten the impression that all of its exotic beaches are exotically hued. We’ve written a lot about black sand beaches and even an incredibly rare green sand beach. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t regular old white sand beaches here as well.


In fact, Hapuna Beach (shown above) regularly appears on various international “Top Ten” lists. With wonderful sand and beautiful water there’s little wonder why it is one of the island’s most popular. That it’s convenient parking makes it far more accessible than those other beaches we’ve discussed doesn’t hurt either.

    That is a great beach. The ones on the east side of the island are not your typical, smooth sand beaches. Looks pretty calm when you were there.

    This is beautiful! Living in Guam has kind of spoiled me on beaches, but your recent posts have made me want to visit the Hawaiian islands. 😀

      Variety is the spice of life. Can’t wait to get to Guam.
