7. Pfeiffer Beach, California

Colored sands always make for unusual beaches but they are usually within a narrow spectrum. At Pfieffer Beach, however, you won’t find a shade of yellow, white, or black sand, it is purple! In Big Sur, California, the sand gets its amazing pigmentation from the high quantity of manganese almandine (also known as garnet). If you can imagine- think of the incredible sunsets when the deep blue ocean meets the purple sands.

There are some highly unusual beaches just waiting to be explored all over the world. Weird beaches they may be, but they are beautiful too. If you were going to make your way to a unique beach, which one of these 7 Wonderfully Weird Beaches would you choose?
