The black beach of Jokulsaron

As you might already guess from the name, the first beach I would like to introduce to you is onIceland. As we all know, the island in the north is full of natural wonders, geysers, glacier landscapes and magical grottos. All of this is typical of the trend island. I would like to show you another natural spectacle today. The land belonging to the Jökulsaron glacial lake is pitch black.Like so much on the island, its color has a volcanic origin. The volcanic ash forms a stark contrast to the white ice floes that otherwise characterize the landscape here. Just beautiful, isn't it?

You can find a similar picture inDyrholaey, a peninsula in southern Iceland. As at Jökulsaron, a volcano is responsible for the dark color of the sand. It is no less beautiful here! I wouldn't recommend jumping into the ice-cold water, but amazement is definitely allowed.

Snow-white sand in Australia

With the color white, I just couldn't decide on a beach. That's why I'm just introducing you to two beautiful, crystal-white beaches in Australia in front. The first dream beach all in white is on Fraser Island. Here, not only the beach, but also the water is something very special, because the only water source of the McKenzie Lake is the rain. The pure white sand on the shores of the lake underlines the purity of the water and makes this beach so special and beautiful.

The second of the white beaches can also be found in Australia. The Whitehaven Beach is on the east coast of the continent in the state of QueenslandWhitsunday Island. With its quartz content of almost 99%, this sandy beach is one of the whitest in the world. Just unbelievable!

Yellow sand in Tenerife & Peru

The beach Playa el Medano on Tenerife has a very special color: a mixture of a deep brown and bright yellow almost leaves the beach Golden appear. With such views, you can easily spend a few hours on your Tenerife holiday under a shady parasol, right?

You can find another splash of color from nature in a completely different part of the world. Here yellow rocks shine in the middle of the landscape and tumble down onto a shimmering red sandy beach. Sounds unreal? But that's exactly how you can do Mother Nature on Playa Roja admire in Peru.

Pink sand beach on Elafonísi

Elafonísi beach is not just a true girl's dream in pinkCrete.The name of the small neighboring island of Crete means something like deer island. The specialty of the island: when the weather is calm and there are no waves, Elafonísi is connected to Crete by a strip of sand. This beach is made up of tiny Shell and coral particles colored pink. Ah!

The green sands of Ecuador

The Punta Cormorant is on the north coast of the island of Floreana, one of the smaller islands in the south of the Galapagos Archipelago. The small natural wonder is hidden between two volcanic hilly landscapes. Treasure hunters watch out! Here you can find the so-called Ilivin Crystals.
