Kalapana Black Sand Beach - The Big Island landscape is always changing, waves crashing into rocky shores and molten lava pouring into the ocean. The Kalapana Black Sand Beach is no exception, with sandy shores that are continuously shaped as crashing waters erode black lava rock. Across 1/4 mile of rocky terrain formed from a 20th century lava flow, you'll make your way across a path to remote Kaimu beach. At the Kalapana Lava Viewing Area, when the volcano is active, emissions are visible as billows of smoke rise above the ocean.
