What makes the sand red?

If you've been to Hawaii before i'm sure you have noticed most of the wild dirt is red. what i mean by "wild dirt" is dirt that hasn't been disturbed much by human activity. The sand turns red because of the dirt crashing down on top of the sand after the years. This beach is more like a cove, and there is high ground right above the beach so landslides are normal.

why is this beach famous?

Why wouldn't a red sand beach be famous? This beach is famous for its beautiful area and they red sand. the waves are never to big, but always a nice size because of the cove it rests in. The water is clean, deep, clear, and just outstanding. I know the next time i go to Hawaii, i'm going here!
