    Pink Sands Beach, The Bahamas - is actually pink, thanks to microscopic insects (foraminifera) who leave their shells behind when they die to be crushed into the sand by the waves.

    This is not just the sunset, the sand on #Pink Sands Beach in #Bahamas is actually pink, thanks to microscopic insects (#foraminifera) who leave their pink shells behind to be crushed into the sand by the waves when they die. Nature never stops surprising.

    Pink Sands Beach, Bahamas Three miles long, gentle and wonderfully wide, the sand at this otherwise textbook Bahamanian cove is pink due to microscopic coral insects called Foraminifera. When they die, they leave their pink shells behind to be crushed into the sand by waves.

Pink Sands Beach, Harbour Island, Bahamas. "Harbour Island is just 3.5 miles long and 1.5 miles wide, but this tiny slice of the Bahamas has one of the Caribbean’s prettiest beaches: three miles of pink sand that stretches along the island’s east coast. The red shells of foraminifera—single-celled marine animals—mix with the island’s white sand, thus creating the soft rosy hue."
