When some­one talks about the beach, only three things come to mind: the sun, the sea, and a bathing suit. Peo­ple imag­ine white sands, blue skies, rolling waves and a gen­tle, charm­ing breeze … Sor­ry to dis­ap­point you, but after read­ing this col­lec­tion, you will no longer think so about all the beach­es, as here are the most unusu­al beach­es in the world. We have already writ­ten about some of them, so you can go to a sep­a­rate arti­cle and get detailed infor­ma­tion.

the most unusual beaches in the world

We have already writ­ten about the best wild beach­es in the world, and if you want to see the per­fect beau­ty, then you should vis­it this col­lec­tion.

Maho beach

Next is Maho Beach, right from which the run­way of Princess Juliana Inter­na­tion­al Air­port begins. This is the only place in the world where planes will land and take off right over your head. Near the beach there is a bar where all the con­ver­sa­tions of the pilots are trans­mit­ted through a spe­cial speak­er.

Papacolea Green Beach, Hawaii

Whether you believe it or not, there are green beach­es in the world. There are only two such beach­es in the world, one on the west­ern Pacif­ic island of Guam and the oth­er in Hawaii, known as Papa­colea. The sand here is green due to a spe­cial olivine crys­tal, which cre­ates the illu­sion of green.

Hot Water Beach, New Zealand

If YOU need a good hot bath while trav­el­ing, don’t go to a hotel but head straight to the Coro­man­del Penin­su­la in New Zealand. Here, under the sand on the beach, there are numer­ous hot springs that pen­e­trate through the sand to the out­side. Just dig a hole in the beach and you’ll have your own hot tub.

Punalu in Hawaii

We have already told you about green sand, now we move on to Punalu beach, the sand of which is com­plete­ly black. This is the most famous black sand beach in the world. In addi­tion to all, there are large green tur­tles bask­ing on the sun-warmed sand and attract­ing thou­sands of tourists every year.


Red Beach Panjin

We con­tin­ue along the col­ored beach­es and go to the red beach of Pan­jin. Con­tributes to this col­or­ing sea­weed-weed, inten­sive­ly mul­ti­ply­ing upon con­tact with salt at cer­tain times of the year.

Barra Beach in the UK

There are unusu­al beach­es in the UK. On one of the islands of Scot­land, right on the sandy beach, there is an air­port run­way. This makes Bar­ra Beach unique and unre­peat­able, as there is nowhere else in the world like it.

Barking sand in Hawaii

The name of this strange beach speaks for itself. HE just barks like a dog. Due to the spe­cial com­po­si­tion of the sand, if you rub it, a char­ac­ter­is­tic bark­ing sound is made.

Playa de Galpiyuri

Per­haps one of the most unusu­al on our list will be Playa de Galpiyuri beach. Well, it stands out because there is no sea near­by at all. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the sea is estab­lished through a net­work of caves 100 meters long, through which water enters here.

Crosby, Merseyside, England

We com­plete our selec­tion with the Mersey­side beach of Cros­by in Eng­land. When viewed from afar, it may seem that this is a crowd­ed nud­ist beach. How­ev­er, com­ing clos­er, it becomes clear that these hun­dred fig­ures are bronze sculp­tures, installed on the very shore. This is an art exhi­bi­tion by sculp­tor Antho­ny Gorm­ley called “Anoth­er Place”. When the tide ris­es, the sculp­tures dis­ap­pear under the water, and when the tide goes out, they reap­pear.

In con­clu­sion, I advise you to read about the best beach­es in Thai­land in a sep­a­rate selec­tion on Life­Globe.
