#12 Papakolea Beach - South Point, Hawaii
Often referred to as green sand beach, this beach is located in Hawaii, in the South Point of the Kau District. The green sand is one of the most unique occurrences, making this beach one of only two green sand beaches in the world. The green hue is made from olivine crystals coming from a nearby cinder cone.
