Diamond Beach

Recommendation by Lemi

Clear ice blocks beached on black sand shores are what gave Diamond Beach its name. Black sand is an anomaly found on beaches near volcanoes when lava flows into the cold ocean. The strangely shaped ice look like glass sculptures, making for a favorite subject for photographers who come here. Diamond Beach is a beautiful backdrop for a little contemplation and soul-searching. It becomes so clear how nature takes two opposing forces to create something so strangely beautiful. Tourists have even brought diamonds of their own here to pop the all-important question to their loved ones!
