Pink Sand Beach in Italy
Italian for “pink beach,” Spiaggia Rosa is a striking stretch of blush-colored sand in the Mediterranean.
Unfortunately, tourists of bygone days took so much of its sand as a souvenir that its pink tint began to disappear.
As a result, the authorities stepped in about 20 years ago, making it illegal for tourists to set foot on the beach.
If you want to see this magical place today, you can only do so via a day trip to Budelli Island.
Like a museum tour, you can admire the pale pink sand from afar – but you’re not allowed to touch it.
