Summer might be over, but it doesn’t mean we have to stop thinking of warm beaches and vacations. In fact, since it’s getting colder, it’s the perfect time to daydream of what beach you’d like to be at right at this moment. And while any beach seems good enough when you can feel the colder months approaching, today we’d like to show you some pretty special ones. To be more specific – pink sand beaches.
Have you ever been to one of those? They look like a scene straight out of a fairy tale. What makes the sand pink I hear you ask? Various bits of shells, tiny red organisms that live on shells and red coral reefs, mixed together with sand that give these beaches a beautiful pink hue. Sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? So what are you waiting for? Take a look at these 8 amazing places with pink sand beaches and plan your next vacation, or perhaps take an impromptu trip while it’s still warm over there.
1. Harbor Island, Bahamas
This is probably one of the most famous pink beaches. It stretches for 3 miles. Can you imagine it? Three miles of beautiful pink sand. Can you already imagine yourself running along this beach? I know I can. Add that to the list of reasons you want to go to the Bahamas. Lol, as if you really needed more reasons.
2. Dutch Caribbean Island
And finally we’ve come to last pink sand beach we’ll mention today – the Bonaire Pink Beach. This one, as many of the other pink sand beaches, owes its color to the microscopic bright pink sea organisms called foraminifera. The Bonaire Pink Beach is quite narrow, but it’s a good place for a picnic and a great location for snorkeling and scuba diving.
3. Horseshoe Bay Beach, Bermuda
Some of us might immediately associate Bermuda with the Bermuda triangle and all the lost ships and planes. But in reality, Bermuda is a great vacation spot. It consists of several islands, all of which are pretty awesome for a summer vacation. The Horseshoe Bay Beach island, however, is probably the most well known and the most popular when it comes to trip destinations. The Horseshoe Bay Beach got its name because of its unique shape, it really looks like a horseshoe. And it’s covered in baby pink sand of course.
4. Budelli, Sardinia, Italy
Italy has so many attractions. The Colosseum, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, The Pantheon, St Peter’s Basilica, the Trevi Fountain, the Sistine Chapel – these are just a few that immediately come to mind. But all of those are just Rome, and there’s way more to Italy than just Rome. There’s a side of Italy that’s much more chill and perfect for a couple of days of lazing around after you’ve seen all the museums. We’re talking about Spiaggia Rosa, which literally translates to “pink beach”. This one is probably one of the most picturesque beaches in Italy.
