While many people may enjoy white sand beaches and palm trees, there are some who may enjoy something a little different. These are not your typical beaches, but they do offer visitors something interesting and just as beautiful as the more popular destinations.

The first is Punaluu Black Sand Beach located in Hawaii. This beach offers visitors everything a beach is known for, beautiful blue water, coconut trees and a gorgeous beach. The only difference between this beach and others is that the sand is black. Located on the southeaster Kau coast, this is by far one of the most unique and beautiful beaches in the world. If you’re looking for a place where your East Coast Lifeguard Hoodie will leave an impression, this is it.

Next on our list of unusual beaches is Papakolea Beach in Hawaii. This beach features green sand and rocky cliffs which will definitely be a treat for visitors. The beach gets its green hue from the olivine crystals of the nearby volcanic cone. If you’re interested in visiting this unusual beach, you should be prepared for a little bit of a hike. Visitors must take a 2 ½ mile long hike along sea cliffs to reach the beauty that this beach has to offer.

If you’re not a fan of green or black sand, maybe you would prefer the pink sand found at Harbour Island’s Pink Sands Beach. One of the most picturesque beaches found in Harbour Island, Bahamas features three miles of the prettiest, powdery pink sand you will ever see. This is definitely a beach that should be visited.

Bowling Ball Beach located in Schooner Gulch; California is definitely a beach worth visiting for those who are looking for something a bit out of the ordinary. This beach features huge, round boulders that are surprisingly smooth to the touch. But that’s not what makes this beach unusual, it is the fact that these large boulders are lined up along the coast like bowling balls. If you’re interested in visiting an unusual beach in the United States, this one should not be left off your list.
