Life is better at the beaches, isn’t it? I mean, we believe in the philosophy so much that we made it our motto. But it’s more than just the sun, sand and sea that result in you feeling so “hakuna matata”. There is hard science-solid, incontrovertible evidence that you are happier at the beach. In this article I’ll tell you about the most unique beaches that all beach lovers must visit!
Cave beach, Portugal
Location: Algarve, Portugal
The Algarve coast consists of limestone, which is easily eroded and can form stunning sea caves like this one.
Pink Sands Beach, Bahamas
Location: Harbour Island, Bahamas
The idyllic pink sand of the Bahamas is pigmented by washed-up coral remnants, which are dashed and ground to tiny pieces by the surf. Eroded particles from red corals across the eastern coast of the Bahamas have washed to shore to give the powdery sand of Harbor island a pinkish glow. If you’re a fan of pink, this beach is the way to go.
The Beach of the Cathedrals, Spain
Location: Ribadeo, Spain
The stunning cathedral-like arches and buttresses of this beach in Spain were formed by pounding water over thousands upon thousands years. Magnificent geological formations form a cathedral-like effect across this idyllic beach in Spain. The beach can only be easily accessible during low tide.
Glass Beach, Hawaii
Location: Kauai, Hawaii
Though it’s regular rock is basalt, the Glass Beach in Kauai is blanketed with millions of sea glass particles which came from years of discarded glass washed up on shore.

Giants Causeway Beach, Ireland
The giant’s causeway was formed 50-60 million years ago when basalt lava rose to the surface and cooled, cracking into strange, large columns.
Hot water Beach, New Zealand
Location: East coast of the Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand
What’s so special about it: Drive down to this beach armed with a shovel, because the best thing to do here is to dig your very own DIY spa. This geothermal beach can get as hot as 64°C (147°F), its heated water spouting from two nearby underground springs.
Green Sands Beach, Hawaii
Location: Papakolea Beach/Mahana Beach, South Point, Ka’u, Hawaii
Thanks to the mineral olivine, which comes from the nearby cinder cone, this peculiar beach sparkles a brilliant green. It’s only one of the four beaches in the world with bright green sand.
Hidden Beach, Marieta, Mexico
Location: Marieta, Mexico
This beach in Mexico is said to have formed after the Mexican government used the uninhabited islands for target practice in the 1900s. This idyllic beach paradise was actually created when the Mexican government in the early 1900’s made a bombsite out of the area, blasting a huge hole on the canopy of the grotto. Despite its dreadful past, we’re actually grateful — the beach looks absolutely gorgeous!
The above are the most unique beaches and I hope you enjoyed reading this one. Pack your bags and book your [eafl id=1537 name=”Expedia” text=”Flights and Hotels”] to witness these beautiful beaches.
