Ka'ena Point: 7 of 7

There are big black rocks everywhere at Ka'ena point, as you could see in yesterday's photos.  But inside this perimeter of black rocks that forms a boundary between water and land, are thousands upon thousands of tiny pieces of mostly white coral and rock.  In fact, they cover the entire beach, so you don't even see or touch sand, you just walk over these.  It is such a striking contrast.  Nature truly amazes me!

I hope you have enjoyed this little virtual tour of Ka'ena Point!


  1. Y'know, Lisa. The Hawaii Tourist Board--and National and State Park systems should be paying you a commission!!!!


    1. I lived on the edge of Ka`ena Point for a few years back in the early 90's when I was part of the director staff at YMCA Camp Erdman and it always amazed me that every morning the ocean waves and flowing tide would change up the beachscape with different rocks and shells and driftwood and sand. Every morning I would walk the beach there and it never ceased to but a spell on me. Ka'ena Point is more living than any other beach I've walked! Truly God's chosen place!

  2. Haha, thanks Christine! I think my inner-child wishes I could be a park ranger or something cool like that :)

  3. Did you see "Picture Bride?"
    There is a scene at Kaena point.
    Good Hawaii film!
