About photo "Papakolea or Green Sand Beach"The famous green sand beach can be found at Papakolea, only accessible via a 2-mile hike through Hawaii’s South Point. Green sand beach is one of the “once in a lifetime” places to visit. The main attraction of this beach is, of course, the crystal green sand. Note that the green crystals that give the beach its name are mixed with black (lava) and white (coral/shells) sand, and that thus some patches of sand are more green than others.
