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."
