The Beautiful Keauhou Beach On The island Of Hawaii Pictured On An Acrylic Fridge Magnet
Until 2012 this beautiful beach on the island of Hawaii was home to the Keauhou Beach Resort. The building was owned by Kamehameha Schools and a decision was made that the area needed information and education for visitors more than it needed the resort. So the resort has been closed in favour of plans for an education centre to teach locals and visitors about the history and culture of the area. There are many sacred and royal sites close by including heiau temples. Whatever plans there are for the area no construction is permitted along the shore. It would be a shame to ever spoil such a wonderful sight as displayed on this attractive acrylic fridge magnet from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts.
Visiting The Beaches Of The island Of Hawaii, The Big Island
The beaches of the island of Hawaii are beautiful in their variety; visitors can see black, white and even green sands. For safe, family friendly swimming Onekahakaha Beach Park is perfect. It is a shallow bottomed ocean pool with amazing views over Hilo Bay. Snorkelling is popular in the area and the conditions are perfect for this pastime. For black sands Punaluu Beach is popular and the jet black shore lined with palm trees makes an impressive sight. Here visitors can regularly see green sea turtles. Papakolea Beach has green sand; the colouring comes from the mineral olivine. This is one of only two green sand beaches in the world, the other being in the Galapagos Islands. The beach is surrounded by pasture land and can only be reached on foot or by four wheel drive vehicle. Much easier to reach, and just as beautiful is Keauhou Beach as pictured on our acrylic fridge magnet.
