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.
8Pink Sands Beach, Bahamas
Situated on a small island in the Bahamas, Pink Sands Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. This beach features almost three miles of pink sands, the origin of which is unknown. For a long period of time, it was thought that the beach’s pink sand is of a volcanic origin, but this has been refuted by scientists in recent years. The color actually comes from the red shells of microscopic marine animals called ‘foraminifera’. Mixed with the white sand, these shells create the island’s beautiful pink sand which draws so many people towards it every year.
