Let’s face it, Mother Nature is one big show off when it comes to beaches, and we’re all for it.
Take Jokulsarlon Beach in Iceland for example. During the freezing winter months, the lake doesn’t freeze completely because of the waves. The waves are responsible for creating something awesome though.
Due to the glaciers in the area constantly melting, massive chunks of ice are washed ashore. They end up on a black beach and, together, the chunks of ice on the black sand create a magical sight with a diamond like shine when the light catches it.
Anse Source D’Argent has been voted the most beautiful beach in the world for several years now, and it’s easy to see why. It’s located in the Seychelles and, not only does it have crystal clear water and an abundance of sea life, but it also contains massive granite boulders that look as if they’ve been painted.
They say pictures don’t do this beach justice; it looks as if we just might have to take a scheduled work trip pretty soon.
In Portugal, there’s a piece of paradise called Benagil Sea Cave Beach. It offers clear water, perfect white sandy beaches, and total isolation.
Thanks to the soft rock formations in the area, the tidal forces have carved out massive structures with arches and a giant skylight with a beach nestled inside.
What makes it so exclusive? You can’t get there by simply walking, you can only get there on a boat or a kayak.
