RED BEACH, PANJIN, CHINA
GULPIYURI BEACH, LLANES, SPAIN
Gulpiyuri Beach, located in a field near Llanes in Spain, is a remarkable place.
Completely surrounded by farmland, this gorgeous little inland cove
looks like something out of Alice in Wonderland. The beach sits on a
depression beneath sea level, and water travels to the beach through underground caves.
The water is tidal, and it even laps the shore.
The best thing about it though, there's almost no crowds.
VANCOUVER ISLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA
Situated between French Beach Provincial Park and Jordan River,
3km north of Point No Point, you’ll find the mesmerising Sandcut Beach.
A small stream travels through the forest, cascading onto the stones and pebbles
of the beach and disappearing into its rocky surface. Unmarked beach access
and a short 10 min hike on a rough forested trail leads to the beach.
HYAMS BEACH JERVIS BAY, NSW SOUTH COAST
Listed in the Guinness Book of Records as having the whitest sand in the world,
Hyams Beach on Jervis Bay is the perfect location to spend a lazy afternoon.
Make sure you pack a pair of sunglasses though; it can get blindingly bright at times.
PAPAKOLEA BEACH KA'U DISTRICT, HAWAII
Papakolea Beach, more commonly known as Green Sand Beach,
is located in the Ka'u district of Hawaii. It gets its unusual colour
from the olivine crystals found in the surrounding Pu'u Mahana cinder cone,
which formed over 49,000 years ago.
