Forget about the usual white sand beach. At Piha, you can enjoy a coast with black sand, which makes it unique. Just 45 minutes away from Auckland, this is a laid back village, which is also a paradise for surfers. Aside from the beach, it is surrounded with rugged cliffs and lush greenery, making it an ideal vacation spot if you want to get close with nature. Hitchhiking is legal in New Zealand, so if you are traveling on a budget you can easily save money on transport.

One of the country’s 7,107 islands, it has gained reputation as Asia’s 24/7 Party Island. From sunrise until sunset, from dawn until dusk, there is something for everyone. While it is famous for its white sand, there are many other things that you can enjoy, such as thrilling water sports, splendid sunset, and vibrant nightlife, among others.

Glass Beach, California

A former city trash dump site, this is one of the most unique beaches that you can find all over the world. The main attraction is the small pieces of colourful glass. They make up the coast and you are free to hunt for them, but as a law, you are not allowed to take even a single piece. The rocks and the cliffs overlooking the beach will make a good picnic spot during your visit.

Bali, Indonesia

This is perhaps one of the most popular beach destinations in Southeast Asia. Kuta Beach, to be specific, is frequented not only by sun worshippers, but even by surfers. It is filled with a wide array of budget accommodations. If you want a more upscale experience, on the other hand, you should head to Seminyak Beach, which is known for its collection of luxury resorts and beach clubs.

Boulders Beach, Cape Town

Here, the main attraction is not the beach itself, but the African penguins that you can find freely roaming around the area. There is a boardwalk that was especially built for penguin viewing. Make sure to stay away from them as their beaks are razor-sharp. The giant boulders that surround the beach also gives it a distinct appeal.

Hidden Beach, Mexico

Located in Marietta Islands, this beach was created after a giant blast during a target practice. What resulted from a disaster is a beautiful work of nature. The white sandy beach has a huge hole as its roof. From the outside, it is invisible. It can be reached through a long water tunnel that is directly connected to the Pacific Ocean.

Byron Bay, Australia
