Owner description: Unlike other black-sand beaches, this sand isn't volcanic in nature but rather is streaked black by run-off from a nearby hot spring.

what i liked the most was it is a great place for photographs, and what I disliked was that it does not have much black sands left

Our driver wanted to take us to see the black sand beach.Unlike other black-sand beaches. Apparently this sand is streaked black by run-off from a nearby hot spring.

I thought it was nothing special and I certainly would go out of my way to see this place. Luckily it was on the way to our next destination.

To get to this beach there are a few market stalls you walk past where you can buy various food and clothing items.

I was really excited to take a drive around and see the black sand beach. Boy was I disappointed. First, it's not black. Second, it's not a beach - I'm just kidding. It is a beach, but not one that I want to hang out near. Save the time and skip this location.
