Colorful Transparent Glass Beach
There is just but only one glass beach known in the world which is located in Fort Bragg, California.

Silica, is material that is formed by both sand and glass , though the sand does contain other minerals within. Through the natural ancient process of erosion the small boulders and sand is formed by the man-made glass located at Fort Bragg. The entire beach is comprised of a variety of colorful glass pieces , including silver , green , blue , orange and occasionally red which appears under the suns rays. It's beauty ultimately difficult to find words to describe.
Green Beach Paved with “Gem”
Panakolea beach is located at the southern most part of the big island of Hawaii , which also happens to be the southern most part of North America. It possesses one of the only two green beaches in the world. To arrive on Panakolea beach one has to tread the rugged volcanic rocks that spans along for a few kilometers because the area along the beach is covered by solidified lava which flows for a few kilometers as well. To grasp the entirety of this magnificent attraction a distance up a steep cliff is still to be travelled. Although it seems like an effort to arrive , the scene does not film to deliver in all it's wonder. Overlooking the beach , a fine jade hue is witnessed between the sky and the ocean, a scene that is priceless and a definite one to experience first hand. The green sand is mainly comprised of olivine, which is regarded as the tear drop by the god of the volcano. It is said that he who takes the green sand as a souvenir will be punished by the god. Through this fear , this precious beach has been protected over the years.
Black Sandy Beach by Volcanoe
On the beach of Hawaii volacanoes National Park, the distinctive black sand beach , Punaluu is clearly known. Volcanic lava flows into the sea and was solidified into black rock by the cold sea water. Days after the erosion has occurred by the waves , the rock evolves into smooth but black sand. A barefoot experience on this beach creates a relaxed feeling by the touch of the soft and delicate sand beneath your feet. People enjoy this beach for getting a tan because the sunlight is easily absorbed due to the dark color of the sand. Amongst the avid tan goers, the turtles and tortoises will often come out to also enjoy the leisure bestowed by this splendid beach. .
Red Beach on the “Moon”
Kaihalulu red beach is located on a covert bay on Maui Island. There is a path leading up to the beach which is covered by loose volcanic ash which makes is difficult to walk on and the chaotic waves gives this beach a disadvantage in that seldomly do people visit besides the avid naked sunbathing lovers who gather on the red beach.
If the black beach is known to make people think of hell , then this beach in Maui covered is brick red makes people think of the moon. Although Maui is a volcanic island , black volcanic rocks are rare as it's been a long time without any volcanic activity. Over the years, the rock on the surface was weathered into the soil, and the black magnetite in the volcanic rocks oxidized into brick red trivalent iron compounds, thus giving the soil its red hue. On the island there are some hills but not much plantation present. Standing upon these hills overlooking the island , the only thing seen is the barren deposits in red circle. When the blue sky isn't seen with an array of white clouds blocking it , the scene of the beach is no more different than looking at the surface of the moon. This is why it is regarded as the only place on earth resembling the surface of the moon. When compared to the black beach , the red beach is considered to be much more rare. The red beach is only found on Maui island and Santorini in Greece.
The reasons that seem to make one place more special than another are due to mainly two qualities , the unique style and eye catching appearance and the unconventional or independent characteristic. Broaden your horizons and realize how small we are but how big the world is , and all it has to offer , so come with and open mind and find the color of your dreams.
