Pink sand beaches of Bermudacourtesy rmuda Tourism Authority
Bermuda’s typically warm weather, stunning views—check out these lodging options with incredible vistas— a long list of water activities like diving into shipwrecks, and pink sand beaches put it high on our list of bucket list vacation spots. The pink sand is actually caused by tiny red organisms that grow beneath the coral reefs just off Bermuda’s shores, and those organisms manage to mingle with bits of crushed coral before making their way to land to cast a distinctive bright pink hue.
Klein Curaçaocourtesy Curaçao Tourist Board
If you’re into secluded Caribbean shores with loads of natural coral, abundant marine life, and underwater caves, Klein deserves a spot on your list. Sitting eight miles off the southeast coast of the southern Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao, the uninhabited island of Klein Curaçao is a slice of paradise, boasting one of the longest and most pristine beaches around. It’s been nicknamed “Little Curaçao,” because the island, which can be reached by boat in less than two hours, is a postcard-perfect vision of how the Caribbean used to be.
