Publicity

The black volcanic sand beach is a highlight at this state park in Maui, Hawaii, but there’s plenty more to see, including freshwater caves, water tubes, anchialine pools, and a natural stone arch. Wildlife is abundant, and on any given day you might see an incredible seabird colony or watch the park’s tide pools turn crimson with the arrival of thousands of tiny shrimp.” – National Geographic
