The Remarkable Purple Sand Beach of the U.S.

In January, many people dream about going to a sunny beach. But have you heard about a beach with purple sand? There’s one in the U.S. called Pfeiffer Beach. It’s in California, along the Big Sur coast. Big Sur is a special place with beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. But it can be hard to get there sometimes because of storms that cause landslides.

Pfeiffer Beach is famous for its purple sand, which scientists think comes from special rocks nearby. The sand’s color can change depending on when you visit. But no matter when you go, the beach is stunning.

Surfers love the waves at Pfeiffer Beach, and adventurers like to explore the nearby Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. At sunset, many people come to take pictures of the light shining through Keyhole Rock.

To get to Pfeiffer Beach, you need to drive about 2.5 hours from San Francisco or nearly 6 hours from Los Angeles. But right now, a landslide has closed part of the road, so it might take longer to get there.

While Pfeiffer Beach is the only known purple sand beach, there are other unique beaches around the world. In Bermuda, there’s pink sand, in Malta, there’s orange sand, and in Hawaii, there’s green sand.
