Any shoreline is a good one if you happen to be resting upon it, but that doesn’t mean all are created equal.

Some sandy spots are composed of unique elements that cause them to appear in shades other than, well, sand. They come in a spectrum of pigments, including, you guessed it, Millennial pink. The color comes from shattered pieces of coral and shells in sunrise hues scattered along the coast. This effect makes them both visually stimulating and (more importantly?) Instagram-friendly.
