Kaimu Beach used to be a famous black sand beach in Hawaii and was the home of 150 families. Up until the early nineties, people enjoyed visiting it. Because of a volcano-related disaster, it is now impossible to access this beautiful black beach.
But, that just makes it all the more special, doesn’t it? The eruptions continue to this day, but the silver lining is that so far over 500 acres of land have been added to Hawaii’s Big Island.
A Beach for Danger Lovers
Located on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, you can’t take a car to Hanakapi’ai Beach. You have to first take the Kalalau trail, which is known for being dangerous and difficult. The beach can be found approximately two miles into the hike and offers little relaxation for those who make the journey.
The waters are known for being deadly, as the strong current and large waves make them impossible to maneuver. A sign cautioning tourists to stay out of the waters indicates that people have lost their lives taking a dip in these waters.
Hawaii Is Home to Many Volcanos
Many know that Hawaii has 6 active volcanos. Not everyone understands that the whole state actually sits on top of active volcanoes. Hawaii is also the home of the most massive Volcano.
This means any moment, the whole of the island state could be completely devoured by the Pacific Ocean. The lava doesn't care what is in its way, it just wants to live its lovely lava life.
Harvard Out, Hawaiian Colleges In
It may seem like an absolute dream to go to college in Hawaii. After all, many Hawaiian college campuses are near the most beautiful scenery you’ll ever see in your life. Surprisingly, the state that is solely associated with pleasure has a total of 19 colleges and universities.
Ten of them are public! Do you think you can major in surfing? We bet a show about college kids in Hawaii would make a great Netflix hit show!
A National Park... of Volcanos
Believe it or not, there are virtual tours of Hawaii Volcanoes that explore lava tubes. They explain the geological processes that have created more than 500 acres of new land and follow rangers as they describe the beauty of the park's volcanic coastal cliffs.
You can virtually fly over the active Kilauea volcano and be instantly reminded of the mighty forces of nature. This type of experience must be really impactful!
