Latin America’s Most Beautiful Beaches

Latin America’s Most Beautiful Beaches

Posted by PanamericanWorld on January 14, 2016

The beauty of Latin America beaches is so serene that most people don't have the ability to resist the aquatic charm. The crystal-clear clean water, fine white or pink sand and hundreds of shades of green and blue colors are what summarizes the beaches' most pristine and picturesque beauty. Most parts of Latin America are tropical which makes these nature's masterpieces accessible to all beach junkies almost all year round.

There are a lot of beaches to choose from that stretch along the Latin America coastline. Some of the best are:

Harbour Island, The Bahamas

The most unique thing about this masterpiece is its pale pink sand which is considered to be the very best in the world. The presence of Foraminifera in the sand is what makes it pink. Foraminifera are microscopic shelled animals with red or bright pink shell called "pseudopodia." Its pink sand stretches along 3 miles long and 50 to 100 feet wide with bits of broken shells, minute rocks, bits of corals and calcium carbonate. The beach's view is perfect especially during the setting of the sun when the beaches' pink sand turns salmon-colored.

Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica

The beaches of Puerto Viejo are famous to have a strong rip current making it known to the world as the surfer's paradise. Of all its beaches, the Salsa Brave beach is the most popular of all because of how surfers from all around the globe would travel just to enjoy its big and crashing waves every year. Though it's perfect for surfing, Salsa Brava isn't good for snorkeling, diving or swimming. Beach goers who want to experience those must check out Punta Uva instead. Aside from surfing, diving, swimming and snorkeling, other wonderful things to do at Puerto Viejo is horseback riding, diving, kayaking, mountain biking and boogie boarding.

Corn Islands, Nicaragua

This masterpiece is composed of two islands: the Big Corn and the Little Corn. Located in the mainland of Nicaragua, this Paradise Island is home to incredible marine life, such as eels, barracuda, different types of fishes, sharks and many more. With almost 20 dive sites, Corn Islands is the perfect place to relax and unwind because of its rustic charms. During the night, visitors can also enjoy taking a sip of fresh coconut juice while mesmerizing the view of the stars.
