Kilauea Beaches – Hawaii
Hawaii beckons sun-seekers with its exotic black-sand beaches. Planning a visit? Pick your spot carefully. Kick back too close to Kilauea and the consequences could be dire.
There’s no question that this is a picturesque place. But the dangers are obvious and all too real. Kilauea is a sight to behold, it’s true. But it’s also a volcano that ranks amongst the most active on Earth.
How active? Kilauea has been erupting continuously since 1983 and not even the experts can predict when it next might blow its top. Sending molten lava flowing into the ocean, you don’t want to be in the firing line when it goes off. Those who underestimate the dangers tend to come off worst. Factor in the prowling sharks that patrol the warm waters here — with attacks often fatal — and it’s clear that these are not the best beaches to visit. Our advice? Head elsewhere in Hawaii and don’t take any chances.
