They hold the heat, so it burns the shit out of your feet

You need to tiptoe around in flip flops (don’t get me started on flip-flops)

It looks like you are on a construction site

You feel dirty afterwards

There are rocks in the sea (the sand comes from broken up rocks after all).

There are large waves, big enough to break rock into black sand (coincidentally)

The waves and rocks at the sea will make it too dangerous for your kids to play in it.

Combined with the hot sand this means you have to hide in a sun lounger for a few hours.

You can’t build proper sand castles

You have to lug buckets and spades to the beach first before you realise this.

Your toddler will forego their midday nap just to make things more uncomfortable.



You can say you went to a beach with black sand.
