Weird, Wonderful & Amazing Beachs In The World (part1 Island)

Here at Golden Darwaza Center we thought it would be fun to look at some beaches around the world that stand out from the crowd with weird and wonderful features rather than just the usual sun worshipping crowds. Take a look at some of the amazing photos below and feel free to suggest others in the comments.

Although not the sort of beach suitable for sun lovers one of the most stunning beaches we’ve seen is at Jokulsarlon,South East Iceland. Here the black sand is littered with giant ice boulders which travel down river from a glacial lagoon before washing up on the beach.

There are a few red sand beaches around the world but none as stunning as Kaihalulu beach on the Island of Maui. The red sand here comes from near by cindercone hill.

Another beach in Southern Iceland is this beauty with jet black sand covered by crashing white surf and the stunning Love of black sand image taken at ReynisdrangarIceland.

White haven Beach in the Whitsunday Islands is 5km long and thanks to an undersea fault line is made entirely of silica. The sand is literally talcum powder fine and is used by NASA to make their telescopes.
