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.

Playa de Galpiyuri

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.
