Tourists already know that there are magical beaches with white, pink, black, and even green sand in the world, but there is a unique place with a purple coastline on the California coast. Pfeiffer Beach is also called Rainbow Beach because of the colours of the sand.

It is not always possible to see it purple here, which adds to the interest and uniqueness of this place. According to The Scottish Sun, only on Pfeiffer can you admire the sand of a rich lavender hue.

According to scientists, this feature of the California beach is explained by the high content of manganese, which, when it interacts with salt water, forms fabulous patterns on the sand.

Despite the fact that this place is truly unique and incredibly beautiful, you won't find many tourists here. The reason is its remoteness from the road.

To get to the Pfeiffer, vacationers need to walk over the rocks that surround this paradise. The journey usually takes a lot of effort and time, and the result does not always meet expectations.

Sometimes the sand here can be spotted and shimmer with many colours, and sometimes it turns deep purple, giving the landscape a surreal feel.

Those looking for locations for unique photos that are not limited in time can try to catch those moments when the coast against the backdrop of a beautiful sunset becomes truly incomparable to anything else.

Even if you don't have much time and the sand remains the same colour, the beach will not disappoint tourists. People often come here to relax in silence and take beautiful photos in the opening between the rocks that are close to the shore.
