1. CATHÉDRAL BEACH, GALICIA (Spain)
How can you reach?
You could fly into Santiago de Compostela airport(Ryanair) and then drive (About 2 hours). Or into A Coruna airport and drive (1 hour and 45 minutes) .This area is also only about a 4 hour drive from Porto in Portugal. Highly recommended as the perfect road trip!
Cathedrals Beach (La Playa de Las Catedrales in Spanish or As Catedrais in Galician) is the most visited beach in Galicia. It’s famed for it’s stunning arched rock formations (and the fact you can only access it at low tide). And, though it’s a major destination by Galician standards, you will see mostly Portugese or Spanish tourists (and when it’s not summer you won’t see huge crowds). Nothing like the crowds you see in the rest of Spain in places like Barcelona, Sevilla, Granada, etc.

One of the world\’s most unique, this 3-mile stretch of pink sand gets its color from crushed shells.Harbour Island is most renowned for its beautiful Pink Sand Beach, located along its eastern Atlantic Ocean side. The almost indescribable pale pink color of the sand comes from microscopic coral insects, known as Foraminifera, which have a bright pink or red shell full of holes through which it extends pseudopodia, footings that it uses to attach itself and feed.
Foraminifera are among the most abundant single cell organisms in the ocean and play a significant role in the environment. These animals live on the underside of reefs, like the nearby Devil\’s Backbone, on the sea floors, beneath rocks, and in caves. After the insect dies, the wave action crushes the bodies and washes the remains ashore and mixes it in with the sand and bits of coral. The pink stands out more in the wet sand at the water\’s edge. Unlike other parts of the world, the sand here is always cool, so you can walk about freely with bare feet.
