LA A'LOA BEACH (aka Magic Sands or Disappearing Sands), Kona, Big Island, Hawaiʻi — A place of many names and many different looks. The water is clear and clean. Sea turtles hang out in the shallows. The sand comes and goes with the surf. Here on a small day looking like the most beautiful pool you have ever seen. Photo by Hugh (sosidesc), Flickr.
