Experience Hawaii’s beauty from above – from it’s unique volcanic black sand beaches, to its pristine white sand beaches.
Located between Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the town of Naalehu, the Punaluu Black Sand Beach is an incredible sight. With its jet black sand, icy blue waters, and lush green trees, the beach makes for a stunning display of contrasts and colours.
The sand derives its colours from the volcanic activity on the island. As the lava flows into the ocean, it cools and becomes rock. These rocks are broken down by the constant battering and crashing of the waves, making way for soft, smooth black sand.
The North Shore, Oahu has some of the most most spectacular white sand beaches, and surfing spots the world has to offer. Driving along the highway, we saw beach after beach and lost count of how many time we stopped just to admire the beauty.
Through these aerial photos you can truly appreciate and experience the natural beauty of Oahu’s North Shore.
