1. Hidden Beach — Mexico

Hidden Beach, Mexico


This strange beach has a rather violent history. It's located on the site of a military testing site in Mexico, and the story goes that bomb tests created this cavernous subterranean beach, which can only be accessed via a water tunnel. Enter if you dare.

2. Hot Water Beach — New Zealand

One annoying thing about beaches is how cold the water can be. But no worries here at New Zealand's extraordinary Hot Water Beach. The sand is riddled with natural hot spring water, so you can dig your own hot tub in the sand and soak away any chills brought on by the waves.

3. Giant's Causeway Beach, Ireland

Giant's Causeway Beach, Ireland


More than any shores you've ever seen, this beach resembles the surface of the moon. Comprised of 40,000 hexagonal black basalt formations that fit together perfectly like a puzzle, the beach is quite a mystical site. Makes sense that it's inspired many myths and folktales. One says the hexagons were formed by the footsteps of giants. (It's likely that volcanoes actually created the beach's bizarre landscape, but even so).

4. Koekohe Beach, New Zealand

New Zealand South Island

New Zealand


There be dragons... at least their eggs. That's if you go by the appearance of the veiny boulders that line Koekohe Beach. Located on Dunedin on New Zealand's South Island, the beach is host to close to seventy of these massive Moeraki Boulders. They were molded by ocean waters, which lumped marine mud and calcite crystals together to form these beauties. Formed on the ancient seafloor around 60 million years ago, today they lie in wait for a spark of enchantment to unleash their inner flying serpents... or at least it sure looks like it.

5. Papakōlea Beach, Hawaii

Papak\u014dlea Beach

Papakōlea Beach


Hawaii's Papakōlea Beach serves up truly unique geology not the least of which is the stunning, bright green sand. One of four green beaches in the world, Papakōlea Beach shade comes from olivine, a mineral that crystallizes thanks to the surrounding cinder cone volcano. It's a bit of a trek - a 5.5-mile hike along the rough terrain of Big Island. But once you arrive and sink your feet into that soft, glittering green sand, and check out the view. The trip will definitely be worth it.

Wherever you go beach waves are always an option for your hair thanks to Beachwaver. Have the best of both worlds and bring this unmatched curling iron with you on your seaside getaway.
