Balos Lagoon Beach of Crete, Greece

It might be hard to imagine, but all over the world, there are some exceptional pink beaches. Tiny red organisms live on pieces of shells and dead coral reefs. These fall to the floor of the ocean and are washed onto the shore. Sometimes, the natural formulations of calcium carbonate from the corals or shells of marine invertebrates, like the hermit crabs, mix with the sands. Some beaches have a stronger shade of pink, while others are have patches of pink. Let us take a look at wonderful pink beaches around the world.

In the uninhabited Greek islands of Gramvousa which is off the coast of Crete, lies the Balos lagoon, between the island and the coast of Crete. This lagoon is lined with a beach along the shallow and warm waters, which offers the most ethereal experience. Parts of the beach are an exquisite pinkish in colour, which is formed due to millions of crushed shells. The beach has rocks and cliffs that bound the lagoon.
