Maybe the imagine for a perfect beach you have in your head in painted in turquoise clear waters and white sands. But you should know that Nature has proven to us how amazing it is, so it hasn’t failed us on this topic either.
Around the Globe, if you are adventurous enough, you can find a rainbow of unique colored-sand-beaches.
Variety of shades of green, red, orange, pink, purple, black, golden-yellow and white. The Earth is full of little wonders, it’s our job to discover them, enjoying their beauty.
Sand is nothing but fine granules of rocks and minerals. Depending on the geological characteristics of a region, it can contain more of minerals as quartz, shell, coral fragments, iron, small gemstones or so…
Science aside, for a great vacation remembered-to-be, in the bigger picture, even the sand matters!
