Pink Sands Beach, Harbour Island, Bahamas: three miles of pink sand that stretches along the island’s east coast. The red shells of foraminifera—single-celled marine animals—mix with the island’s white sand, thus creating the soft rosy hue.
nesola: Jellyfish Lake, Republic of Palau, Micronesia. The jellyfish evolved in the lake without any predators, and over time grew vegetarian and lost their ability to sting. Their red color is a result of an algae diet. The water in the lake is salty.
