5 Strangely Coloured Beaches

The sand on these beaches comes in black, white, green, red, purple, and pink! It's all a matter of what kind of rock was pulverized to form the sand. Four of these five beaches are in the the United States. Shown is Pfeiffer Beach in Big Sur, California, with its pink and purple stripes. Link -Thanks, David E!

When my family was leaving the United Arab Emirates to immigrate to Canada I bought a small little sand display that has the sand from: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Respectively the colours for the sand for each country goes like this in the display: White, Orange, Red, Beige, Light Blue, Gray and Black.
