帶有抹茶飄香的夏威夷綠色沙灘
Embrace the Colors of Nature in Hawaii

提到醉人湖泊與海灘,腦海首先浮現的,大慨是清澈見底的藍綠湖水與原始美態的白滑細沙。倘若告訴您還有不同顏色的湖水與海灘,您又能相信嗎?罕見的氣候或自然因素,把大自然的染缸通通打翻,湖泊與海灘紛紛換上極致動人的色彩,形成一幅又一幅絕妙的天然畫作。
The crystal clear water and the white sand may be the first things that come to mind when 
speaking of breathtaking lakes and beaches, but rare climate or other natural factors can turn them colorful and more intoxicating.

夏威夷綠沙海灘

除了澳大利亞的“草莓奶昔”, 你還可看看大自然界的“抹茶咖啡”。世界各地僅有數個綠色沙灘,美景罕見,而當中最吸引的莫過於夏威夷的Papakolea沙灘! Papakolea沙灘位於夏威夷島,是夏威夷群島中的最大島嶼。上萬年前,島上的Mauna Loa火山爆發後,將含有大量的橄欖石成份的火山岩帶到岸邊,經歷長年累月的海水沖擊,翠綠的橄欖石被磨成了沙子,形成今天得天獨厚的綠沙灘。

站在山頂遠眺Papakolea沙灘,彷彿在細看一塊細膩的碧玉,更像一杯巨型的抹茶咖啡;綠沙灘面積不大,約相等於1.5個足球場,配襯著藍色的海水,白色的浪花,景色可謂獨一無二。輕輕捧起綠沙,在沙粒於指間細流的一剎,彷彿在空氣中也帶著淡淡的抹茶味道,沙粒更璀璨得猶如亮眼的寶石,難怪被列入世界十大著名彩色沙灘。

不過要細看這寶地絕非易事,因綠沙灘隱藏在懸崖底的深處,旅者抵達綠沙灘停車場後,需乘坐專門接送行者往返沙灘的私營越野大卡車,經過約一個半小時的顛簸路程才可到達,但正因其位置偏遠,讓這遍沙灘保留著最原始最自然的景色,絕對是世間罕有,同時也更適合喜歡寧靜的您。

Green Sand Beach in Hawaii

Besides the “strawberry milkshake” in Australia, you can also have a look of the “matcha coffee” in the natural world. Tucked away near South Point – the southern tip of the Island of Hawaii, the largest of the Hawaiian Islands, Papakolea is one of the few rare green sand beaches in the world. Many thousands of years ago, volcano Mauna Loa erupted and loads of lava with the green olivine crystals were brought to the shore. After years of water erosion, the crystals have turned into sand, forming today’s unique green sand beach.

Standing on peak and overlooking the Papakolea Beach, it is like looking at a piece of delicate jade, or a cup of giant matcha coffee. The beach is not large, probably just the size of 1.5 football fields, however it is stunning to match with blue sea water and white tide. Gently pick up the green sand which looks like brilliant gems, it seems that you can smell the scent of matcha when the sand is slipping through your fingers. No wonder that it is listed among the world’s top 10 colorful beaches.

However, the treasure is no way easy to get. As the green sand beach is hidden in the deepest part under the cliff, visitors need to take a pick-up truck or Jeep from the car park to the beach and ride for about 1.5 hours to get to the primitive pearl of natural beauty. Because of its remote location, it is definitely suitable for those who like tranquility.
