    Green Sand Beach, Big Island

    May 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Einer von wohl nur 4 Stränden weltweit, die aus grünem Sand bestehen. Natürlich hat Maggi wieder verbotenerweise etwas davon für daheim eingesteckt. ☺
    Der Offroad Weg dahin war dabei sogar das noch viel grössere Abenteuer. SO eine heftige Offroad Strecke sind wir beide noch nie mitm Auto selbständig gefahren. Einfach nur heftig, holprig, hammer!!! Für unseren Jeep ein Kinderspiel, für uns mal wieder ein weiterer Adrenalinschub auf Big Island. 🤪👍🏼Read more

    Stuck on an Island......still

    April 18, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    With no improvement to my ears we get ready to spend another day on the Big Island. After breakfast our new friend Celia and her daughter Jazzy asked if we wanted to join them on a trip to Green Sand Beach. We jump at the opportuntity and before long we're on the road for another adventure. The 2.5 hour journey gives us plenty of time to share stories and we learn that Jazzy and her mum are on their way to St. Louis to attend a robotic competion for their school representing Australia at the world titles.

    As we arrive at the Green Sand Beach parking lot were met by a ugly looking local trying to sell us a charter rides to the beach on the back of a dodgy looking 4x4 ute for US$15. We decline and decide the tackle the treacherous 6 mile hike ourselves. Running out of time, and with a flight to catch, Celia flags down the first Jeep and we jump aboard with Alex and Kieran and get thrashed around on the epic journey to the beach.

    Outside the car were greeted by free exfoliating facials by the hurricane force winds sand blasting our faces. A quick hike down the hill and were amazed at the beautiful cove of glistening green sands with families and dogs. A quick stop over and were back on the road with Celia's formula 1 driving finesse to catch her flight. We get dropped off at the doctors and bid farewell to our new friends. Best of luck Jazzy and do Australia proud!

    No update from the doctor so we slowly make our way back to the hotel and stop by the surfboard shop to chat with the owner Scotty about the local surf beaches.

    Now that were basically local tour guides, we share all the top destinations and activities with all the new tenants at the Hostel and polish off a few ciders.

    Fingers crossed its our last night

    Today we drove down south to the South Point Park, where also the Green Sand Beach is located. Pretty windy but very nice place.

    Green Sand Beach

    November 17, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Ein paar Meilen weiter steigen wir auf einen 4WD-Truck eines Einheimischen und lassen uns die 3 Meilen zum Green Sand Beach fahren. Die Fahrt - stehend auf der Ladefläche - ist unglaublich holprig und abenteuerlich. Seine grüne Farbe verdankt der Strand übrigens den winzigen Olivinkristallen, die ebenfalls vulkanischen Ursprungs sind.Read more

    Green sand beach

    September 16, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    So as mentioned, after I got my adrenaline kick, I continued, parked the car at the end of the road walked along with some others to the beach with green sand. In the end it was more camouflage like, but still an awesome beach to swim and play with the strong waves. :)
