We didn't actually make it to the beach that was fully green, but we saw some of the green minerals in the sand. The minerals are created by a lava tube that empties out into the ocean after traveling many miles. Mostly it was just another beautiful stop on our way to our first camping site, the black sands beach at Punalu'u. The black sand beach was the first either of us had seen. Created by crushed lava rock (I think), the whole place has a kind of dark, eerie, feel to it. We had a great time at both places and nearly lost our tent to the wind at black sands beach.
