Beaches are a great for holidays and who does not love a trip to the beaches. The warmth of the Sun on your skin, the fresh air blowing off the sea, the soft sand between your toes all together it is a great feeling.
But there are some beaches in the world which are on a next level the glowing waves, the chunks of ice, and the hot springs are what make a holiday special.
These beaches have some unique qualities. Here are 5 strangest beaches on earth.
Algar de Benagil in Portugal is one of the highlights of the Algarve coast. It is a natural cave formed in the rock by the action of the tides. In the arched space left behind, a beach has formed. The hole in the roof of the cave acts as an oculus which lets daylight in to the secluded, sandy beach. Since the only access to the grotto is from the sea, you’ll have to brave the waves to enter between the rocks which guard the entrance if you want to visit.
It is one of the unique beaches in the world. In one of the beaches in New Zealand on Coromandel Peninsula people can dig their own hot water spa.
Hot Water Beach has one of the most literal geographic names in the world. When the tide goes out, water can be seen bubbling up from the sand. This water is hot. An underground river is warmed by geothermal heat that comes close to the surface here.
As soon as the tide is out, visitors rush to the sand, some with spades which can be rented from a local cafe, and begin digging pools. The cold seawater retreats, and the pools fill with the hot water that gives the beach its name.
The Gulpiyuri beach is one of the smallest beaches in the world and sometimes it is also called as an inland beach. It’s only 100 meters (330 ft) from the sea, but it’s still cut off from it by high rocks and cliffs. Yet as the tide comes in on the sea beyond, the sand of this hidden beach is covered by water, too.
It is a series of caves and channels that have formed in the rocks which connects it to the sea. The tiny beach was formed in the last Ice Age, and its name means “Circle of Water.”
This beach literally plays hide and seek with the people, due to its unusual flat seabed which comes up to the shore, the low tide makes the sea recede by up to 5 kilometers (3.1 mi). This beach is located in India in Chandipur.
When the tide goes out the people use this place to walk, run, or play sports on the sand. And it is actually a great place to ride cars all the way out to now distant sea. The exposed seabed is also rich in red crabs and other sea creatures, which twice a day find themselves gawped at by humans as they are cut off from the sea by kilometers of sand.
New Zealand’s amazing natural landscape has made it a favorite location for filming fantasy movies, as it has sights found nowhere else on Earth. Dragon Egg Beach may sound like something out of Game of Thrones, but it is a real place and a popular tourist destination.
There is a stretch of Koekohe Beach that is dotted with large, spherical boulders. These Moeraki boulders formed 60 million years ago from concretions of mud, clay, and calcite. The boulders formed underground and thus were not smoothed by the motion of the waves. They have only recently been washed out of the cliffs above, from which they roll down to the beach.The boulders are full of erratic cracks, which, once exposed, can break open to give the boulders the look of hatching eggs.
