Who in their right mind doesn’t enjoy the feeling of walking down a sandy beach while the sea breeze caresses all their senses? Beaches are universally viewed as being the epitome of calmness and serenity regardless of culture or geographic proximity. As a matter of fact, most people often find refuge near the seaside, while only a few go for the proverbial cabin in the mountains when looking for a relaxing getaway. This might, of course, have more to do with status than convenience or luxury, but this doesn’t explain why millions of people from all over the world are flooding towards their nearest beaches every time the weather gets a bit warm.
There’s something special about the feeling of warm sand beneath a person’s feet that makes them giddy with joy no matter what their background is. In fact, the universal symbol of romanticism is a sunset over a sandy beach, and it has been for quite a while now. It seems that people are drawn to beaches almost magically, and seeing how amazing some beaches can be, we though it would be nice if we made up a list of THE most interesting beaches from all around the world.
10Barking Sand Beach, Hawaii
Situated just seventeen miles from Hawaii National Park, this unique beach is world-renowned for its noise more than anything. A walk along its quartz sand reveals a sound that resembles the barking of a pack of dogs. Scientists say that the sand on Barling Sand Beach makes this interesting noise because of the sand grains which are hollow. This beautiful beach can be found on Kaua’i Island in Hawaii and is only partially opened to the public due to the Pacific Missile Range Facility that can also be found on the island.
