This other-worldly beach was created from lava flowing into the ocean. When the basalt reaches and settles at the surface, these gorgeous, unusual and haunting coasts are formed.
Cinder cone rich in iron surrounding the beach is in a constant state of erosion which forms one of the most original and unusual beaches in the world.
The enclosing cinder cone circling this beach is rich in the mineral olivine, a common component of Hawaiian lava. It’s also one of the first crystals to form when the magma cools.
