This is 49 Black Sand Beach. Accessed through the guarded and gated community in the Maua Lani complex, this cove is a prime location for snorkeling and sunning. The black sand is hotter than its white or green cousins. The heat it radiates means slippas are needed all of the way to the water and fluffy towels are mandatory.

Butterflyfish, cardinalfish, goat fish, angel fish, tangs, eels, flounders, turtles, rays, and Hawaii’s trigger fish: humuhumunukunukuapua’a fill the rocky depths of this busy inlet.
