Vermilion colored lava cliffs and the red pebbles and sand of pulverized volcanic rock make this one of the most unique beaches in the world. This captivating scenery is the result of volcanic activity that left behind a unique location with otherworldly hues that will make you feel like you are taking a vacation on Mars.
Whether you are swimming in the dark blue waters or relaxing under an oversized umbrella, this remarkable location will make white sand beaches seem boring. Red Sand Beach is prone to landslides and considered dangerous but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming one of the most popular attractions on the island.
