1. Hot Water Beach, the Coromandel, New Zealand

One unique beach destination you might consider for your vacation is the Hot Water Beach in New Zealand. Not only does this beach boast miles of golden sand but during the two hours during low tide, visitors can dig their own pool and relax in the hot water, which bubbles up through the beach’s golden sand. Where does the hot water come from you might ask? Well an underground river, which is heated by underground volcanoes, can be found directly under the beach. If you’re tempted, Oceans Resort Whitianga offers spacious, modern apartments that are within walking distance of Hot Water Beach and is a great option for your accommodations.

2. Oneuli Beach, Maui, Hawaii

If you’ve been to your fair share of white sand beaches, you may be interested in Oneuli Beach in Hawaii, which boasts three different colors of sand that include black, red and white. Oneuli Beach, which is located on the island of Maui, is also the perfect beach destination for those looking for a bit of privacy as it’s not visible from the road. If you’re interested the two nearest resorts are the Grand Wailea and the Four Seasons with both offering luxurious rooms and stunning ocean views.

3. Vaadhoo Island, the Maldives

The best time to visit Vaadhoo Island is at night when the water, which laps the island’s beach, sparkles with what looks like thousands of fluorescent blue lights. The secret to this natural phenomena are the island’s unique species of phytoplankton that are bioluminescent and give the illusion that the water itself is sparkling. If you’d like to see the magic of Vaadhoo Island for yourself you may be interested in staying at the Adaaran Prestige Vadoo, a luxury resort that boasts overwater luxury villas with many of them having private pools.

4. The Jurassic Coast, East Devon and Dorset, England

If you’re looking for a truly unique beach vacation destination, visit England’s Jurassic Coast where you’ll be able to book a guided dinosaur centered fossil walk. The Jurassic Coast is comprised of approximately 95 miles of coastline and has been listed as a World Heritage Site as it’s rock formations tell the story of over 185 million years of Earth’s existence. On a guided tour visitors can expect to see Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous rocks and fossils. Nearby hotels to consider for your accommodations include the Hotel Prince Regent, the Hotel Rembrandt and the Hotel Aqua.

5. Big Major Cay, the Bahamas

Big Major Cay in the Bahamas, which is also known as Pig Beach and Pig Island, is home to a group of wild pigs that can be found swimming happily in the warm, turquoise water that surrounds the cay.
