Tell me, please, how does a normal beach look? Water is blue and clear, sun is shining and sand is … white or gold, yeah? And will you like the idea when one of beaches is black or yellow? I guess you will be surprised, so you’d better find some information about them right now. 3 Strangely Colored Beaches:
- Kaihalulu or red sand beach
The following beach is known as Red Sand Beach and it is situated on the far side of Ka’uiki Hill. The sand gets its amazing colour because of the crumbling cindercone hill that surrounds the bay. It is almost impossible to swim here since the ocean is very severe, the path is slippery and full of pine needles. The only one thing I love about this beach is the view – it is mind-blowing. However, the beach is very isolated and it is possible to bath there even nude.
Forget about civilization here, it means no lifeguard, no facilities, seasonal high surf and amateur snorkeling and diving.
- Pfeiffer Beach
Of course I can tell you that the following beach is famous for its sunsets but, actually, not only because of them. The hills surrounding this Californian beach are extremely rich in Manganese Garnet. Ii washes down onto the beach every day thus creating a whimsical colour scheme. The entire beach looks like an abstract pink and purple painting.
- Punalu’u Beach
Punalu’u Beach is the most famous and highly visited black sand beaches on Hawaii ‘s Big Island. Apart from enjoying incredible views of black sand you can watch the sea turtles, swimming and even snorkelling. This black sand is actually volcanic rock, that get its colouring when cooled and met by the ocean. It is forbidden to take this sand and home since a volcano goddess Pele can put a curse on you.
