Harbour Island, Bahamas

4. Harbour Island, Bahamas

Harbour Island is most renowned for its beautiful Pink Sand Beach, located along its eastern Atlantic Ocean side. Considered one of the very best beaches in The Islands of The Bahamas, it was featured in The Travel Channel’s World’s Best Beaches segment in March 2005 and named ‘Best Sand Beach’. Pink Sand Beach is a 3-mile stretch of pale pink sand and gentle seas. The almost indescribable pale pink color of the sand comes from microscopic coral insects, known as Foraminifera, which have a bright pink or red shell. A coral reef provides a sort of break-wall for the beach, and the water is warm year-round, making it perfect for swimming.

Spiaggia Rose, Italy

5. Spiaggia Rose, Italy

Spiaggia Rosa is one of the few places in the world to have pink sand. As a result, it’s one of the most magical and paradisiacal spots on the Italian Mediterranean. The brilliant color of Spiaggia Rosa comes from a concoction of crushed fossils, crystals, coral, and dead marine creatures, which blend together to tint the sand with a rosy blush. As gorgeous as its pink sand might be, Italy’s Spiaggia Rosa is off-limits to the public. The beach can be viewed via boat or from a nearby cliff that overlooks it, but no one is allowed onto the beach itself. Indeed, such a magical scene deserves our careful protection.
