“There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number— living things both large and small.” (Psalm 104:25)
It’s summer once again, and it’s time to hit the beach! If you want to spice things up a little, we have a few suggestions. Now let’s see what our wonderful world has to offer.
“Some went out on the sea in ships; they were merchants on the mighty waters.They saw the works of the LORD, his wonderful deeds in the deep.” (Psalm 107:23-34)
There’s the Red Sea that Moses crossed, and there are pink beaches. How are pink beaches formed? “The light pink sand "gets its hue from thousands of broken coral pieces, shells, and calcium carbonate materials left behind by foraminifera (tiny marine creatures with red and pink shells) that live in the coral reefs that surround the beach" according to Budget Travel (https://www.budgettravel.com/destinations).
Here are some of the world’s best pink beaches:
Komodo Beach, Indonesia

Harbour Island, Bahamas

“And I saw what looked like a sea of glass glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and over the number of its name. They held harps given them by God” (Revelation 15:2)
These beaches have an ethereal blue glow at night. “This natural phenomena is caused by phytoplankton (a type of microalgae float at the surface of the ocean water). They emit a bright blue light after they become agitated by wave movements or nearby swimming fish” according to Business Insider.
If seeing the Northern Lights or the Southern Lights is in your bucket list, why not try watching these lights in the sea?
