Where do I go to find the Best Big Island Beaches?
There is a definite difference in the types of beaches as you travel the island. On the west side (Kona side) of the Island you will find more of the white sand, yellow sand and occasional black sand beaches that attract people from around the world. On the east side (Hilo area) you will find more of the black sand beaches and more surfing waters. It’s only on the south side of the island that you find a green sand beach. It really is green and comes from the particles produced by the volcano.
