If the previous beach has white sand, Punalu’u Beach features black sand made of basalt created by lava flowing into the ocean.
Punalu’u Beach is not a very good location for the swimmers.
The swimming area here is very rocky and the beach has very cold water that looks like gasoline, as you can see in the second image.
