Who does not want to rest on the sea? Especially strongly this desire in the winter. You close your eyes and can almost hear the waves rustling, and the warm sea breeze touches the skin. But after all beaches are strips of the earth on the border with water. It is not surprising that they inherit the best traits from their elemental parents.
And the real beaches are not those that are in Turkey. In the world there are several truly unusual places that are ready to receive tourists, there would be money for this. Even if you can not visit these beaches, you can listen to them and see them.
Red beach of Kayhalulu.
On the Hawaiian island of Maui, south of Hana Bay, this amazing beach is located. By itself it is rather narrow. This, together with his solitude, served as a good bait for nudists. But not they – the main thing on the beach. Uniqueness is attached to it by red sand of volcanic origin. It contains a large amount of iron oxide, that is, rust. The Pacific Ocean gives the unusual sand a dense brick shade, which looks especially impressive at dawn and sunset.
Shell Beach on the island of St. Bartholomew.
Here, in the Caribbean, nearby is the town of Gustavia. Only here it will be rather difficult to swim here. But children – this expanse. And tourists will surely be able to carry away the memory of the beach. After all, it is all strewn with tropical shells, for which it is better not to walk barefoot. The sea here lives a stormy life, and frequent hurricanes and strong currents for centuries supply the beach with tons of such souvenirs. Near the beach, sailboats often stop, and the famous Rockefellers live nearby.
Beach of Hayams.
This place to the south of Australian Sydney has even fallen into the Guinness Book of Records, as the deposit of the world’s whiteest sand. From a distance the beach reminds of large whipped cream. However, when going here, do not forget about sunglasses and sunblock. On the snow-white sand will be great photos. In addition, at dusk, the sand gives its own backlight. The richest people buy real estate here, though it is rather expensive in these places. And to Sydney from here only 3 hours drive.
In Hawaii, there is something to see and where to buy. But among all the local beaches stands out this one. In this protected area there is green sand. To get here is not so simple – you first have to pay and get permission, and then walk a couple of hours on the hills. It’s not so simple, because there is nowhere to hide from the heat. But the picture you see is worth it. A beach with green sand – what can be more surprising? Such a cheerful color this place owes to semiprecious stone olivine.
Beach of the Jurassic period.
It is located near the village of Lime Regis, in the English county of West Dorset. The fact is that the coastal rocks are literally created from tons of petrified ammonites. These ancient predatory molluscs stand out for their highly rounded shell. In some parts of the planet, ammonites are considered an ornament, and on this beach they are just garbage. He is always cleaned from the beach. But this role is successfully performed by tourists who carry bags of fossilized shellfish from Dorset.
Beach of Punaluiu.
And this place is also the pride of the Hawaiian Islands. It is very warm sand, and this is due to its unusual black color. After all, it is based on volcanic basalt. Lava during volcanic eruptions flowed into the Pacific Ocean. In contact with the waves, it exploded with future grains of sand. Black sand attracts green turtles. But touching them is forbidden, as well as taking out even a handful of unique sand from the beach. Local residents say that the one who violates the ban, expects the curse of the volcanic goddess Pele.
Beach with pink sand.
The Bahamian island of Harbor has a pink beach. His pastel colors look gentle and inviting. This is how tourists who have been here feel, and locals adore their beach.Meanwhile, the secret of attractiveness is quite simple. The beach turned out this because of the combination of pure pink color of the coast with the turquoise of the Caribbean shallows. From the outside this place looks like a real paradise. Over a gentle shade of sand, nature has done a good job. To thank for this, you can also coral, crushed by surf, and the tiniest red plankton, settled on grains of white quartz, and a red shellfish. Photographers from all over the world come together to make colorful photos. After all, the color of sand is so well combined with the blue sea. The length of the entire beach is 5 kilometers, and the width of the sand strip is from 15 to 30 meters.
Beach of San Blas.
On the Maltese Bay Ramla Ile-Hamra is the most gaudy beach, not only in Europe, but all over the world. The unique color of local sand was born as a result of a combination of colors of ancient volcanic ash and golden limestone, from which the rocks and hills of the island are composed. Although the bay is full of tourists, on this beach they are not so many. San Blas is also known for the fact that its orange limestone will last until the end of centuries, while other colored beaches may change their color over time.
This beach in California is called rainbow. It is located in the place of Big Sur, famous for its sunsets. The hills surrounding the beach are filled with minerals of different shades. Among them, spessartin is predominant. This kind of pomegranate contains manganese and aluminum. The very same mineral varies in color from orange to blood-red. Rain and waves wash away particles, and they rush to the ocean with water. Millions of crystals play in the sun, and the sand on the beach has all the shades of purple. There is also lavender, pink, purple, ruby red. Patterns of the beach are absolutely fantastic. An uninitiated guest might think that there was a spill of gasoline or simply a brain that started a bizarre game. However, finding the beach will be quite difficult – it is hidden among rocks and hills. Solitude dilutes only the chirping of birds and the sounds of the surf.
This natural wonder is also in California. Almost 70 years, this place was nothing more than an ordinary spontaneous dump. Every year, shattered bottles, plastic and even car rests were thrown ashore. In 1967, the “green” finally achieved closure of the landfill, and the ocean continued to grind out the glass and plastic that it had received. After a couple of decades, people found that there was nothing left of the dump, and the glass turned into colored and translucent stones. This multicolored monpancier is perfect for making necklaces and souvenirs. Officially, you can not take glass sand from here, but the authorities look at it through fingers. Tourists also get the opportunity to purchase beautiful souvenirs, processed by the ocean. The beach of Fort Bragg is the place where history is created. After all, glass and sand are essentially the same in composition. In the end, what once was a bottle of champagne will someday turn into a sand. He will be entangled in the hair, from which the child will create his castle. For the sake of justice it is worth noting that from a distance the beach is not noticeable, revealing all its colors only close. Beach with heated.
In fact, this beach is not artificially heated by anyone. On the coast of New Zealand there is a place that is in the zone of tectonic activity. In some places the water warms up to 64 degrees, so you have to be careful not to get burned. The reason for this – underwater tanks, filled with water. It warms the heat of the volcano. When it comes out, it heats up the beach itself. People can get warm right in the sand. To do this, you need to dig yourself a hole and settle into it.
Beach with cooling.
And here the water is cooling down artificially. There is such a beach in the rich Dubai. This is the first beach in the world of its kind. Offers to relax on it the hotel Palazzo Versace Dubai.Visitors will be able to relax on the beach, under the sand of which pipes with refrigerant are laid. And the air itself is cooled by huge fans, replacing the sea breeze. Although the temperature around the beach exceeds 40 degrees, it does not feel scorching heat, but cozy warmth.
