Pink Sands Beach

Pink Sands Beach, located on Harbour Island in The Bahamas, is a striking and notable beach that is sure to leave an impression. Spanning approximately three miles in length, this unique beach boasts a distinctive hue derived from Foraminifera, a type of microscopic coral insect. These creatures reside beneath reefs and rocks in the sea and, when they expire, their shells wash ashore and blend with the sand, creating a one-of-a-kind appearance. The coral reef known as "Devil's Backbone" shelters the beach from large waves, resulting in typically warm and tranquil waters.
