Last week we looked at black and white sand beaches, but did you know that Hawaii also has red and green sand beaches? As a fun fact, you’ll find that green and red are exact opposites on a color wheel, which makes them the perfect example of a color contrast.
We took the photo of this red sand beach in Hana on Maui. It’s located at the end of Uakea Road–off the Road to Hana. It’s just outside the main town of Hana on the southern end.
Hawaii also has a green sand beach that’s located near the southern most tip of the Big Island. I’ve not had the opportunity to see it yet. It’s still on my to do list. I found this excellent photo of the green sand beach on Flickr. The photo credit goes to RaShi with use by Creative Commons.
