Read about this phenomenal purple sand beach. I did say purple because the sand is actually purple, however, under the microscope it is a beautiful pink. The color comes from the manganese garnet in the nearby mountains, so this reading refers to the scientific process of weathering which creates a totally unique beach experience. This beach is located on the Pacific Ocean in Central California.
