10 Unusual Yet Stunning Beaches You Should Visit After The Pandemic

These are not your typical white sand beaches.

Beaches are undoubtedly the first thing people think of when planning their vacations. Who wouldn’t love the idea of digging their feet in crisp, white sand while watching the relaxing blue waters? But have you considered visiting a beach surrounded by dragon eggs? You can also enjoy a hot bath right by the ocean if you know where to look.

The world has several beaches that are special in their own way. Here are 10 strange and beautiful beaches to consider for your next vacation.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, Iceland

This isn’t your typical beach with sunshine and white sand. Jökulsárlón is easily identified by the huge chunks of ice that are regularly found on the black sand. The ice is left on the beach when the lagoon flows from a short waterway into the Atlantic Ocean.

The beach is a great place to look at the sky but stargazing could be difficult when you are in Maldives. The beaches are usually filled with microscopic bioluminescent phytoplankton which makes the shore even more stunning than the stars.

Hot Water Beach, New Zealand

People usually encourage their children to bring spades and buckets to the beach so they can make sandcastles. In Hot Water Beach, these tools have a different purpose. Visitors can dig their own hot water spa due to the geothermally-heated underground river that runs close to the surface.

Pink Sand Beach, Bahamas

The gorgeous pink sand that brings in hundreds of tourists are actually washed-up coral remnants.

Papakōlea Green Sand Beach, Hawaii

The amazing sand in this beach is actually a result of the mineral olivine, which is formed when lava cools down.

Glass Beach, California


The beach near Fort Bragg earned its uniqueness because of human intervention. The local communities used to dump their trash by the sea but the waters polished the sand into sparkling little pebbles.

Koekohe Beach, New Zealand

While Glass Beach has tiny pebbles, Koekohe Beach has huge Moeraki Boulders that are known as Dragon Eggs. These boulders are actually concretions made of sedimentary rock.

Shell Beach, Australia

The sands of Shell Beach is made up of cockle shells. The cockle managed to escape their natural predators because of the high salinity of the beach.

Algar de Benagil, Portugal

The secret beach of Portugal is a natural grotto that is only accessible by sea. Not surprisingly, it is also one of the most popular beaches in the list.
