Pink Sands Beach

      Pink Sands Beach is one of the most distinctive beaches you will encounter, and you can find it on Harbour Island in The Bahamas. Approximately 3 miles in length, this unusual beach will surely take your breath away. Its colour comes from microscopic coral insects called Foraminifera. They live underneath reefs and rocks in the sea, and once they die, the sea washes their shells onto the beach, mixing them in with the sand.  The water is usually pretty warm and calm, because the coral reef called “Devil’s Backbone” protects it from big waves.
