There’s a southern most point everywhere. This is the United States most southern point. Sorry Key West or any other territory, this is Hawaii. Technical there is another place that is part of this area but it isn’t a beach or green. And this is the only completly green beech in the world as well. It’s a 2 1/2 mile braided poor excuse for a road (without 4WD a good awful hour wagon each way). Notice the back of the Jeep and top of the cliff in second picture.
But why go? Its a collapsed volcano crater littered with olivine (peridot to those bigger crystals, birthstone for August). You can see deep blue to turquoise waters. Swim or get beat by 7-10 feet waves. But mostly to see exotic beauty of rugged Hawaii.
The surf plays hell with even it’s sea creatures. One endangered Honu, Hawaiian Green Turtle got tossed over the lava and coral. Next high tide, she’ll be fine. It’s also hefty fine to “rescue” them
A surfers beach work golden sand set way back from the water. It’s only 1 1/2 miles down a road that’s rental car worthy
Shimmering like million diamonds
Deep rich blues mix with turquoise
Quiet claps of waves fill the air
Smell of salt hovers near
Waiting for sunburnt nose to fill
Tranquility has no clock or pace
It knows the place it ocuppies
Shead the worldly problems for a spell
You only have nothing to gain
And loads of baggage to lose
Kahalu’u Bay, Big Island Hawai’i
Swimming with Green Turtles
