Living in Hawaii, you could say that we are a big fan of the beach. Here are 8 unique beaches that we’ve recently discovered, and we’re dying to go to!
1. Hidden Beach, Mexico
Located on the Marieta Islands near Puerto Vallarta, this beach is as Instagram-worthy as they come. Adding to the exclusiveness, you need to swim through a cave to access this hidden geological gem.
2. Maya Bay at Ko Phi Phi Island, Thailand
This gorgeous location made it’s claim to fame from the movie, “The Beach”, (which I haven’t seen yet, shame on me!). Although now unfortunately ridden with tourists and boats, the rock formations are still a sight worth seeing.
3. Glass Beach, Kauai
This beach is made up trillions of little glass particles, somehow collectively gathering at this one location. It might not be powdery soft, but it’ll be one of the more unique shores your feet ever sift through.
4. Bioluminescent Beach, The Maldives
This neon shore is lit up phytoplankton, giving it it’s bright blue glow. I bet the pictures don’t even do this miracle-like beach justice.
5. Cave Beach at Algarve, Portugal
Similar in beauty to Hidden Beach mentioned above, this limestone cave sits strikingly on the coastline. The various holes are caused by years of erosion.
6. Giants Causeway Beach, Ireland
This one has been on my bucket list for a very long time. The rock columns were formed when basalt lava rose to the surface and cooled, creating large, intricate patterns.
7. Cathedral Beach, Spain
I guess I have a thing for beaches and badass rock formations. With cathedral-like arches and tons of caves to explore, consider checking out this beach during low tide.
8. Boulders Beach in Cape Town, South Africa
This beach is unique in the fact that it’s inhabited by penguins, a lot of them! You might not be able to lay down and relax on this beach, but it will stand out in your mind as one of the most memorable.
