The Black Sands Beach at Kalapana, called Kaimu in Hawaiian

In 1990, Kilauea volcano erupted and Kalapana village was in the direct path of a massive lava flow. The lava completely destroyed the village and buried everything – including the beautiful Kaimu beach – under 80 feet of lava!

Punaluu Black Sand Beach

Located between Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the small town of Naalehu, Punaluu Black Sand Beach’s jet black shores are an unforgettable sight. Coconut palms fringe the upper edge of sand and you may also discover large honu, or Hawaiian Green Sea turtles, basking on the beach.

Black Sand Beach ( Playa Negra ) Vieques, Puerto Rico

The island also had some volcanic activity, hot magma pushed up through the plates in the ocean floor. Some obvious signs of that volcanic activity would be the rocks of Puerto Ferro, and this black sand beach. The black sand is very fine (but very heavy) volcanic material that runs down the volcanic areas of the island (mainly Monte Pirata) along with rain run-off and ends up in a small stream (Quebrada Urbana), where it eventually gets pushed out onto Playa Negra.
