The Hawaiian Islands are positively ancient, with the island of Kauai clocking in at 4.9 million years old. Measuring in at more than 4,000 square miles, the island of Hawaii is not only the largest of the Hawaiian Islands, but also the youngest. In fact, the island is still expanding at a rate of nearly 40 acres per year, thanks to Kilauea Volcano. One of the best places to check out this relatively new volcanic land is the stunning New Kaimu Black Sand Beach, a slice of true Hawaiian paradise that – quite frankly – didn’t exist even 20 years ago.
