Never seen beach sand like this!
The sand on the French Leave Beach looked slightly different. It did not have the familiar white or yellowish color. Upon closer inspection, I realized that it was looking pink. Sharmila and I had found out about the Pink Beach in this island but this was not that beach.
Regardless, it did look pinkish. Picked up some sand and realized that there are a lot of red particles in it. Check out the picture. You will see a lot of tiny red dots – which is why the beach looks pinkish.
When we came back to the resort, found out from the locals that those are actually corals. Some of the corals get knocked off from the reefs and then waves and water over time pound them to small particles and leave some of them on the beach!!
