Pink Beaches? The Logic Revealed  

The pink beach sand is the end product of any rock that transfers from different areas and places along with decomposed rocks, organic products, and most of the time Parrot fish poop. The Environmentalist Rachel Carson said: 

“In every curving beach, in every grain of sand, there is a story of the Earth.”

The rocks break down from physical disintegration and chemical decomposition of earth materials or happened near the earth’s surface over millions of years. The starting journey of the sand is when the rock breaks down and flows down in the streams, rivers, and lakes then constantly break down along the way. After, diminishing from the tides and waves of oceans, the final product of sand is produced. The pink beach sand may be coming from Foraminifera, a microscopic organism that is beneath reddish-pink shells as the sand is a mixture of coral shells and calcium carbonate. The marine organisms mix up with the bits of coral and shells, growing up under the coral reefs after death. The living place of creatures making the sand pink and these critters help the pink beach sand cool when you walk barefooted, you can easily understand the miraculous phenomena of the Creator.

Pink beach sand designs and patterns are developed due to photoshop but in fact, they have a naturally pink color. The other inviting sand beaches rely on different ecological processes. Although sand beaches have various colors due to different aspects like dark-colored rocks, tan-colored sand produced by the destruction of the lava, and Basalt rocks, they are found in Hawaii, the Canary Islands, and the Aleutians. The worldly known white sand beaches are produced by the poop of Parrotfish which bites and scrape off the rocks and that mixes up with Calcium carbonate made from reef skeleton. To our amusement, parrotfish help to produce hundreds of pounds every year.
