Imagine an ordinary, sandy beach. It is possible. Imagine a black beach. Even this is possible. Imagine a pink beach. Well, this is truly possible and not a unique phenomenon. They are exotic and picturesque and you could think of Barbie and Ken sitting lying in the sun. All over the world there are some pink beaches – just like there are many other colors. How do they get pink? There are tiny red organisms living on pieces of shells and dead coral reefs, which fall to the floor of the ocean. Afterwards they are washed to the shore. In the following, we will show you some of the pink beaches.
Elafonisi Beach, Crete
This Greek island is located in the south of Crete. One could call it a hidden gem in terms of beauty. Even though some parts of the beach are rocky, it is a beautiful destination with great rock formations, turquoise water and of course the pink sand. Elafonisi is a good destination for families. You can reach this magical place by car or by boat and explore the great beaches.
Indonesia contains 17,508 islands of which Komodo is one. It is the habitat of the Komodo dragon, the largest lizard on Earth and it has the beautiful pink beach. The water is calm and clear and everywhere are colorful corals to be found. The local tongue calls the beach the Red Beach, as the microscopic animals produce a red pigment. No wonder, that this spot is one of the top diving spots in the world.
Bonaire, Caribbean Sea
The island Bonaire has over 22 beaches – white ones and one that shines pink. The pink beach here is an excellent beach to visit if you want to snorkel or for a relaxing picnic. Whatever you decide to do, the views are idyllic and beautiful. You will not find refreshment stands, as there are none of them. Visitors need to bring their coolers with food by themselves and the equipment for snorkeling to have a unique experience. What an idyllic beach adventure!
Pink Beach, Bahamas
The most famous pink beach is perhaps the one at Harbour Island, Bahamas. The pink sand beach is three miles long. This is the place for natural beauty, elegant resorts and the perfectly pink sand. The ocean is ideal for swimming as it is warm throughout the year. This is the point where turquoise water laps at the pale, pink sand shore. Pink Beach at Harbour Island is a magical place and offers a great atmosphere that retreats you from the hectic rituals of daily life.
Life is not only black and white; it can even be pink. A pink beach offers all the advantages an ordinary beach has, but it is more than that. Visitors experience a great view, magical moments and maybe they learn that they need to keep their eyes open to find the beauty things in life.
