{ 1. } Keoneloa Bay
(KAY-OH-NAY-LO-AH) “LONG SAND, LONG BEACH”
This sand contains a high level of calciumcarbonate in sand-sized fragments of coralline algae, coral, clams and other marine organisms, a common make-up of sand for many of Hawaii’s beaches. The lithified sand dunes that make up the ridges on either end of this bay, along with the rest of the coast, are a result of calcite cementation of the sand dunes and are comprised of wind-blown carbonate beach sand and other materials. This beach is also known by locals as “Shipwrecks,” named for the wreckage of a fishing boat in the mid 1970’s.
