The beach is made from bits of black lava rock ground into sand, and a billion (or two) bits of shell. The water is warm, and the sun is filtered by trees. It is perfectly perfect.
We came early this morning to watch the sun rise, but found only the deep blue and grey of early morning, and wild surf. It was a rush, standing at the edge of the ocean as it turned from night to day.
I waded in the lagoon, collected a few tiny shells to bring home, and explored the tide pools.
I could have spent the whole day here. Next trip, I will.
