Black Sand Beach and Turtles

This is the Black Sand Beach, as you can see; this place is very windy.


The beach is famous for turtles coming for rest. Here is one! You are required to keep distance no less than 5 meters from these turtles!

We could see these two individuals; but some tourists were unfortunate, and could see none! When we came back in the evening, there were none, indeed.
