What type am I?

  • Active coast because although I'm not ton the edge of a plate, the hot spot that this beach sits on causes it to have tectonic activity
  • Primary coast because Puna lu'u is on an island created by a hot spot, not shaped by waves
  • Emergent, this is a beach that literally emerged from the water.

Whats on my shore?

  • The sand on this beach is black, from igneous rock, basalt
  • The waves are relatively choppy and there are lots of rocks (aka dangerous for swimming)
  • The water is super clear and blue
  • This beach is the natural habitat of endangered green turtles!
