Many travel trends have come and gone over the years. 2019 is no exception as the year is set to bring a whole new idea to the table: red beaches. Forget pink beaches, it’s all about the red beaches in 2019.
Kokkini Beach, Greece
If you’re heading to Santorini, then it could be time to stop in at Kokkini Beach to take in the incredible red cliffs on offer. The color of the rocks is highlighted even more thanks to the blue of the sea. There are many ways to make it to the beach including hiring a car, taking a footpath, and enjoying a cruise to the beach.
Cavendish Beach, Canada
Believe it or not, but Cavendish Beach is one of the hidden gems tucked away in Canada. The red sands make it an incredible sight while the local camping grounds and the national park mean there are plenty of ways to incorporate this beach into your trip.
Porto Covo Beach, Portugal
The sands of Porto Covo Beach glow bright orange throughout the day while the setting sun every evening helps to highlight the incredible redness of the sand. As if that wasn’t enough, the brightly colored buildings have earned the area the title of one of the most colorful towns in the world.
Kaihalulu Beach, Hawaii
Kaihalulu Beach might be in the middle of the town on Maui island, but it still seems as though this red beach is one of the best-kept secrets. There is a small path that takes visitors down to the beach where people can soak up the sight that is almost out of this world as well as the incredible snorkeling views that can be spotted from the waters.
Rabida Island, Ecuador
Many think of white sand when they imagine The Galapagos Islands, but Rabida Island has a hidden secret up its sleeve: red beaches. The sand is covered with sea lions who have all made the area their home. It’s the high iron content in the volcanic rock that gives this area its color and is now home to some of the most impressive animals.
We might have spent many years dreaming about pink beaches, but it’s time to put those dreams on hold in favor of these red beaches instead. They truly are a sight like no other.
