Everyone knows a black sand beach with turquoise and white waves washing on shore is an unforgettable sight, but did you know these beaches can be created practically overnight?  For instance, the black sand beach at Waianapanapa State Park in Hana was built almost instantly when molten lava shattered on contact with cool blue waves.  For this reason these beaches are very fragile, so when you leave a black sand beach like this one make sure the sand stays behind.
