10 MORE UNUSUAL BEACHES YOU WONT BELIEVE EXIST

10 MORE UNUSUAL BEACHES YOU WONT BELIEVE EXIST

During our travels we love to search for unique and unusual beaches. We previously put together a post with 10 unusual beaches you most probably have never heard of.

Since then we have come across even more bizarre beaches we never knew existed and just had to share them with you all.

1. The Beach of the Cathedrals, Spain

Over the years this Spanish beach has transformed into a natural cathedral. With 30 metre tall arches and dozens of caves it is an incredible sight to see, especially during low tide.

2. Panjin Red Beach, China

Located in the Liahe River Delta, this unique beach is a vibrant red colour caused by a type of plant called Suaeda Vera. If you are wanting to see this red beach for yourself you will need to visit in the autumn when the plant has matured creating this stunning red landscape.

3. Jokulsarlon, Iceland 

This beach is an incredible sight. With black volcanic sand and chunks of ice scattered along the shore from nearby glaciers, this beach is one of a kind.

4. Bowling Ball Beach, California

Large spherical rocks are scattered across the shore of this beach resembling giant bowling balls, hence the name. Caused by millions of years of erosion, this rare phenomenon can also be seen in New Zealand and North Dakota.

7. Papakolea Green San Beach, Hawaii

The sand at this Hawaiian beach is green! When the surrounding volcanic mountains erupt the lava flows down into the sea where it cools off and produces a mineral known as olivine. Once the mineral gets washed up onto the shore it turns the sand green.

8. Giants Causeway Beach, Ireland

This beach is made up of over 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result after years of ancient volcanic eruptions.

Also known as White Beach, Hyams Beach holds the Guinness Record for having the whitest sand in the world! It pretty much looks like it’s snowing year round.

10. Salton Sea Beach, California

This beach is particularly unusual as the beach is not covered in sand, it is covered in fish bones!
