The Big Island: The Most Southern Point in the US & Green Sand Beach

 This is what the most southern spot in the US looks like.
Kinda close to the tip is the Green Sand Beach
Its a 3 mile walk one way.
There are locals willing to drive you down and back in their 4x4 vehicles. We decided to hike down and save some cash. (Note for next time: don't wear flip flops)
 Its a flat hike pretty much the whole way. The only thing is that is is crazy windy so your getting pelted with dirt/sand. We were exfoliated and orange (from the dirt) by the time we actually made it to the beach.

We opted to spend $10(each) for a ride back to our car after we spent a couple minutes checking it all out. The driver said the sand is usually a lot greener when the wind isn't so harsh.


  1. It's hard to believe some place could be so tropical in December. It's beautiful. The hike looks worth every sand pellet :)

  2. What a beautiful view! We just got to Hawaii, and I can't wait to go out and explore the other islands.
