Green Sand Beach
Mahalo to Rick Bramm- Edmonton, Canada

Calm waters may look safe, but strong currents can carry you away. Don't swim far from the beach- you could end up in Tahiti.

Green Sand Beach
Mahalos to Kelly Porr of Arroyo Grande, CA

Cliff edges frequently erode and are loosened by frequent small earthquakes.
Your weight near these edges may result in your last adventure.

Green Sand Beach
Mahalo to Rick Bramm- Edmonton, Canada

At the parking area, you will find several local senior citizens with heavy duty 4WD vehicles.
They may offer to shuttle you to Green Sands for a "donation".
Be advised- They are un-licensed with no permits, thus cannot charge a flat rate for this service. Kona123 has heard donations acceptable range from $20 a couple to $40 a carload. Although kona123 has never heard a complaint, we are not responsible for your decisions.
