7 of the World’s Most Interesting Beaches

By Julia Austin, Planet Green

Your friends send you pictures from their mobile phone of the snow white sand under their toes while on their beach vacation. Sure, those pristine beaches are nice and few and far between, but you’re not really a devotee to finding less-chartered beaches until you’ve explored these totally strange sandy shores:

1. Hyams Beach in New South Wales, Australia
Since there is a fascination with snow-white beaches, it’s only right I include Hyams Beach, which is actually the whitest beach in the world. At least no other beach has yet to beat it in the Guinness Book of Records.

Piękne plaże, ja bardzo lubię morze i dla mnie najpiękniejsza jest plaża w Kołobrzegu nad Bałtykiem.

Lovely vistas, so many around the world to choose could spend a lifetime travelling from beach to beach if one had the income so a photographic journey can often suffice!
