Are all beaches black sand? : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread

I have heard that the sand in Hawaii is black. Are there some beaches with white sand, or are all the beaches black?

Response to Sand

Actually it's opposite of that. Most of the beaches are white sand. There are a few black sand beaches on the Big Island that are close to where there have been eruptions.
