1. Whitehaven Beach, Australia
This beach is 7 km long. The best way to get there is to take a boat from the tourist ports of Airlie Beach, Shute Harbour or Hamilton Island. This beach is popular because of its white sand, that consists of 98% pure silica.
4. Algarve Caves, Portugal
This is a beach under a cave, pretty amazing, huh? It is a natural cavity and the access is only by water. If you want to get on this popular beach you can rent a kayak or take a tour.
8. Glass Beach, California
This beach is really unique. It is surrounded by small cliffs and rocks, but what’s interesting about this beach is that this place is abundant in sea glass. It was created from years of dumping garbage in this place. Glass is buffed out to smooth pieces and it looks like pirates’ treasure.
