1. Beaches don't just appear! They take tens of thousands of years to create. They develop as a result of the constantly moving water.

Sand, pebbles, and gravel are left behind by the waves along the shoreline, creating a beach. Minerals and rocks are broken down by sand. Sand can only form after thousands of years of rock formation.

Sand isn't always golden, despite the fact that it usually is. Additionally, it is available in a wide selection of hues, including red, brown, pink, orange, gold, purple, green, and black!

The Canary Islands have black beaches. This is so because volcanic minerals are where the sand is found.
