Black is beautiful and these black sand beaches from around the world show how true this saying is.

This Black Sand Beach, Lost Coast, California is so well-known for its black sand beach lies pristine and relatively untouched. It is 4,000 feet below the surrounding mountains of California. The remote beach is hard to reach and very hard to get in, the only way to get there is the small mountain roads. Camping as well as hiking are the two big things in this area. This is a perfect place to connect with nature.

You may have just found your new favorite beach in the world in Perissa, Santorini, Greece. With its crystal clear water and its smooth but devilishly hot sand you are sure to enjoy your getaway. It is known as one of the Greece’s best beaches and is protected by Mesa Vouno and the ruins of the ancient Spartan city Thera to the north. Enjoy a picture perfect scenic of the stark contrast between the black sand beach and the white buildings.Every tourist must experience the 3 kilometer hike to Mesa Vouno at dawn to take in a sunrise fit for the Gods, if not, your visit would be incomplete.

Aside from the beauty of nature in Bali and the beauty of the city in Jakarta, there is the Black Sand Dive Retrest is a small 6-bungalow quality dive resort located on a sheltered bay in a natural setting on Lembeh Strait, Indonesia’s Exotic Critter Capital. The resort focuses on personalized service both above and below the water, offering an exceptional dive holiday experience in "The Mecca of Muck Diving" Lembeh Strait for our discerning guests. Visiting divers have very limited holiday time and staying here will worth every minute of the vacation. It is the incredible diving that draws visitors to Lembeh Strait.

Vík Beach, Iceland is situatedat the southernmost point of Iceland. This is definitely one of the prettiest black sand beaches in the world. This stretch of black basalt sand is one of the wettest places in Iceland, getting about 90 inches of rain a year and is surrounded by volcanoes and glaciers – which if you ask us, makes for one heck of a unique destination.

Punaluu Beach, Hawaiiis to be found on the Big Island. It is actually a result of lava that’s flowed to the ocean and cooled, creating a beautiful, but rocky beach. Be wary for sun-bathing Hawksbill and Green turtles, you’re on their turf after all. Be sure to stay at least 15 feet away from these endangered creatures otherwise the beach patrol might cut your visit short. Oh, and taking some of that stunning sand home with you as a memento isn’t allowed either.

Travelling and having a vacation can sometimes be overwhelming and stressful. To avoid this kind of problem, make a research beforehand. How often is it that people became a victim of scam of false advertisements? Westhill Consulting Travel and Tours, Singapore provides advice and tips as warning for travelers.

Jasmine Stewart | 1 comments Indonesia is very affordable, although Bali is less so than elsewhere. There isn't much night life (except maybe in Bali) though, and the nice beaches and islands are far from Jakarta. On the other hand, July is the perfect time to go (early in the dry season) and domestic travel- including flying- is cheap. Given your limited time, you might want to look into going to Manado and checking out North Sulawesi.

Goa is probably the most famous state for beaches and the coast is truly beautiful, but it can get crowded and has a festive, party vibe so it may not suit you - if you like the idea of dancing to trance music on the beach then places like Anjuna, Calangute and Colva are ideal. But these are developed resort areas. If you are looking for something more simple and back-to-nature then I would recommend Palolem, which is right in the south of Goa. Kerala also has some amazing beaches!

Machael Andrews | 1 comments White beaches are still the best for me, Navagio Beach is an isolated sandy cove on Zakynthos island only accessible by boat. It is one of the trademark beaches in Greece, frequently featured on postcards. Navagio Beach is home to the wreck of an alleged smuggler and features sheer limestone cliffs, white sandy beaches, and clear blue water. No wonder this stunning beach attracts thousands of tourists every year.

Selena Grey | 1 comments I need to see a beach, and soon. Does anyone know of any secluded/quiet beaches near Seoul? I just want somewhere to go and relax and read.

Cindy Lam | 1 comments Try, Glass Beach, Kauai, Hawaii. While sea glass itself isn't too uncommon to find on the beach, it is unusual to find it in the vast quantities you see on Glass Beach. Made from broken bottles and auto glass, the moving ocean has smoothed out the pieces to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world
