Coloured sandy beaches provide a fantastic and unusual vista - green, white, purple, orange, red, brown and pink sandy beaches with blue ocean water.
Some are coloured sandy beaches due to the local rock, some are due to volcanic rock, some due to coral reefs mixed with local sand, some can only be explained by surprising geological processes occurring millions of years ago.
Even the classic white sandy beach of Siesta Beach Florida is geological unusual in that it is 99% pure quartz. The source material for Siesta Beach's amazingly pure quartz sand is said to be from the Appalachian Mountains.
Some are a mystery such as Ramla Bay beach on Gozo. The islands of Malta and Gozo are made of limestone. So why is Ramla beach sand so red when stones, pebbles, rocks found in the sand are white? Why are the other mysterious Maltese sandy beaches not red?

Origin of Coloured sand and beaches
Why do sandy beaches have so many stones and pebbles associated with them? Why do some beaches have so much sand? Where did it all come from?
Is the origin and formation of sand and sandy beaches from geological process like erosion, glacial and fluvial deposits?
Is the origin and formation of some sand and sandy beaches from other sources or alternative theories? Could some sand be formed where it is found due to Electric Universe theory geology? Could some of the source be from interaction with other planets during Worlds in Collision events - extraterrestrial sands as some who investigate the EU theory suggest.
But even more unexpected was the find of beach sand at a great depth and far away from any land. “One [of the ‘new scientific puzzles’] was the discovery of prehistoric beach sand . . . brought up in one case from a depth of two and in the other nearly three and one half miles, far from any place where beaches exist today.” One of these sand deposits was found twelve hundred miles from land.
Ewing recognized the uncomfortable dilemma: “Either the land must have sunk two to three miles, or the sea once must have been two to three miles lower than now. Either conclusion is startling. If the sea was once two miles lower, where could all the extra water have gone?” I shall return to the problem of the fallen ocean level, which I consider to have been the result of rapid evaporation due to catastrophic heating.

Where did the Sahara sand come from? It did not exist 6,000 years ago. Experts are proposing that vast oceans of sand formed in less than 3,300 years. This is impossible because Saharan sand is some of the oldest on the planet. Putting this into context means that an area the size of the US has been covered in a vast sea of sand in what has to be the blink of an eye in geological terms. This makes no sense because the time frame for the formation of the sand does not allow it according to consensus theories. If the adjoining deserts swathing out across the Middle East and Asia are also considered, this equates to an area twice the size of the US. Where did all this sand come from?
Is it possible the earth is covered with debris from recent cosmic catastrophe? Could debris such as large boulders, rocks, stones, pebbles, dust and sand which are believed to be indigenous to Earth actually be extraterrestrial in origin?

Multi coloured sand Alum Bay, Isle of Wight
The sandy cliffs of Alum Bay, Isle of Wight, England are included in this list because they are amazingly varied colours of sands in the cliffs next to the beach and they look great!
