Well preserved Native Hawaiian petrogylphs on the hardened lava at the Kona Village Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. There is a nice boardwalk surrounding the petroglyphs for observation and preservation.
Punalu'u - black sand beach, Big Island, Hawaii. Every inky basalt grain at Punalu'u is the result of lava from nearby Hawaii Volcanoes National Park exploding as it hits the ocean and cools. Not the best place for swimming, but the tradeoffs are the unique sights of coconut palms rising up from black sand and Hawaiian green sea turtles napping on the beach.
