5 Most Unique Beaches In The World! Description: For most of us, our normal run-of-the-mill beaches are those that are arc of golden sand, glistening, with clear blue waters and palm trees swaying gently in the breeze. Let's slowly close our eyes and imagine that for a second. I'm sorry to be the one breaking this, but the most unique beaches in the world do not follow this mantra. They are your not-so-conventional types of beaches. Sure, you'll find them quirky but also very different and beautiful just like these 5 Most Unique Beaches In The World! Lets begin! 1. The Hidden Beach Whoa! Is what left my mouth when I saw this beauty. Unless you know it is there, you have to be high up to spot Playa da Amor on the Marieta Islands in Mexico. All good things have a history behind them. This beautiful beach front has a violent past. It was formed when the area was used by the Mexican Government for bomb testing. I'm not sure why the government chose this particular spot. Anyway, these tests led to a huge hole that was blasted into the sea cliff. Well, what was left of it was a truly stunning swimming spot. Travelers cannot get enough of it! 2. The Glowing Beach Imagine a starry night sky after dark. Now imagine that on an ocean front. The Maldivian gives this spectacular view to its visitors. It is certainly fit for fairytale royalty. It is an incredible sight that is attributed to phytoplankton which glows when disturbed. Question is, whose bugging these planktons? Whoever is doing so, keep at it! These phytoplanktons are quite abundant along the shores of the Maldives which makes the sight even more beautiful. That would probably explain why they are a favorite honeymoon destination. 3. The Hot Water Beach Forget Jacuzzis and the like. Imagine a hot bubbling bath provided by underground springs. You can sit there the whole day, though I would strongly advise against it. Health reasons you know. This is what visitors to the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand enjoy. Well, it takes a little bit of work to get that bath up and running. You'll find tourists with spades because they know that a little bit of work will bring huge rewards. You don't have to dig too far to create this 'amazing' geothermal spring water. It peaks at 147 degrees Fahrenheit. Nowhere on earth does anything come close to this! 4. The Green Beach At first glance, you may think this beach is covered in moss. Not at all. The bright green appearance of the Papakolea Beach in Hawaii derives its bright green appearance from the native sand that lines its shores. The origin of the color? From a nearby volcano which produces the green mineral olivine. It is one of the only four green beaches in the world. No wonder it is a wonderful peculiar destination for any traveler. 5. The Desert Beach If you thought deserts are found only in arid areas, then you have certainly not met the beach at the Lencois Maranhenses National Park in Brazil. This beach is not by the seaside as you would anticipate. It is located far, far away from any water body. Heard of lagoons? Every year, continuous rainfall floods the National Park. This results in beautiful lagoons fringed with perfect white sands. If you plan to visit the park, I would suggest May to September. You'll have the time of your life. Fish can even be spotted in the water during these peak months. October would not be a good time. You wouldn't see much: the lagoons are usually completely dried up as they await replenishment in February. What are you waiting for? Get your ticket for Brazil!
