Odd Beaches, See it to Believe it!

Look at these Beaches! Cool ~

 1. Pink Sands Beach, Harbour Island, Bahamas

This is one is so pretty, and not to mention so girly-like. Three miles of pink sand that stretches along the island’s east coast. The red shells of foraminifera—single-celled marine animals—mix with the island’s white sand, thus creating the soft rosy hue.

2. Papakolea Beach, Hawaii

If we've got pink, we also have green sand. This is a green-sand beach. The grains are almost pure olivine, a green mineral, and come from Puu Mahana, a volcanic cone that sits above the beach.

3. Genipabu Beach, Natal, Brazil

Aside from swimming you can hop aboard a buggy for a roller coaster–esque ride, climb onto a camel for a Lawrence of Arabia–meets South America lope, or go sandboarding. Swimming is not the only activity we do here...Did I mention it's a kinda-yellow beach?

4. Thunder Cove, Prince Edward Island, Canada

Loving colors here Cute-rs, it's a red-sand beach! This is a beloved beach for its rust-colored sand and dunes. The red sand is due to high iron oxide content.

5. Punalu'u Beach, Hawaii

This is a Jet-black sand gives this southern Big Island beach a rather postapocalyptic look. Gloomy huh?! Good thing frequent appearance of green sea turtles brightens the mood. Well, what do you know. But must warn you - The turtles are endangered, and touching them is against the law.

There you have it Cute-rs Beaches with color. Oh I love nature, they made wonders to humans...
