Pink Beach

There are several pink beaches around the world. The sand gets its color from broken coral pieces and shells left behind by foraminifera. These tiny marine creatures with red and pink shells live in the coral reefs that surround the beach. We got to spend a few hours on this beach in Indonesia and we had it all to ourselves! It felt like our own private beach. I included a piece of coral the waves washed up since it helps tell the story behind the pink color!
