Pink Sand Beach in the  Bahamas

Pink in both name and nature, Pink Sand Beach is located on the eastern side of Harbour Island.

An endless expanse of paradisiacal Bahamian shoreline, it stretches for 3+ miles and is around 100 feet wide in places!

Its striking rosy hue is caused by something called Foraminifera – microscopic coral insects with bright pink and/or red shells.

When the insects die, the waves crush their shells into tiny pieces and eventually wash ashore.
